It left a bad taste with me. It is still safer to place the boot files within that limit last I heard. Admittedly, I haven't kept up with LILO in about a year and a half. Often I use an alpha, so no LILO is involved. My only remaining intel linux box is a dual boot using LOADLIN. Typically, I end up reinstalling Windows every 6-8 months, so it is a matter of convience. Good news for LILO fans. Thanks for the info. Laters, T.J.
