Hi Paul,

I have just finished LFS4.0 and thought about a LILO splash screen. The 
LFS4.0 installs a lilo-22.2 and has a link to bootlogo hint (LILO boot 
splash screen) which, however assumes lilo-21.7. So, I am a bit confused. 
Can I patch 22.2 with 21.7. In addition, the links in bootlogo hint lead to 
unexisting server.
Could you please, explain me, how did you managed?

Thanks in advance.
