Re: [Bug 31] lilo-22.3.1 James Iwanek Sun Jun 30 04:17:02 2002

the kernel dosnt - on my last build i was floppy booting cause my hdd was 
being silly - i never installed lilo or bin86 + i made 4 kernels inside 
that build - btw elks (embedded linux kernel subset) does use bin86 but we 
dont use elks ;-)
