Thanks, Grant, it looks interesting.
I've solved the multiple lilo.conf problem by making each boot's
/etc/lilo.conf a symbolic link to /boot/lilo.conf. Thus I have only one
lilo config no matter which system I boot into. Unfortunately, the RH7
install doesn't appear to have a compiler (?!?) in it so it won't rebuild
lilo to match the other versions. Thanks to LFS I can fix this, eventually,
by tracing all the dependencies and installing those items necessary to get
lilo up and running in the same version as the other installs.
