    SubjectLILO error with 2.4.3-pre1...
    Hmm, needed 2.4.3-pre1 and went to install with LILO using
    'lilo -v' and got this:

    LILO version 21.4-4, Copyright (C) 1992-1998 Werner Almesberger
    'lba32' extensions Copyright (C) 1999,2000 John Coffman

    Reading boot sector from /dev/hda
    Merging with /boot/boot.b
    Boot image: /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.2
    Added linux *
    Boot image: /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.3-pre1
    Fatal: geo_comp_addr: Cylinder number is too big (1274 > 1023)

    Neato. I don't have time to dig through LILO source code right
    now, so here are my system specs:

    Linux Distribution: RedHat 6.2 with all latest updates
    Hard Disk: Maxtor 52049H3 (20GB) IDE
    CPU: Dual PII-266MHz
    RAM: 256MB PC100
    Result of 'fdisk /dev/hda -l':

    Disk /dev/hda: 255 heads, 63 sectors, 2491 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 bytes

    Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
    /dev/hda1 * 1 1513 12153141 83 Linux
    /dev/hda2 1514 1530 136552+ 82 Linux swap
    /dev/hda3 1531 2491 7719232+ 83 Linux

    I have no idea why the 1023 limit is coming up considering 2.4.2 and
    LILO were working just fine together and I have a newer BIOS that has
    not problems detecting the driver properly. Go ahead, call me idiot :).
