/etc/lilo.conf stanzas include
boot=/dev/hda: The location of the first stage loader.
map=/boot/map: The map file to install.
install=/boot/boot.b: The second stage loader. If this is omitted, the default is
prompt: Displays the LILO prompt without requiring the user to press the Shift key. If this is set, but the timeout is not set, the prompt will wait indefinitely.
timeout=50: The time, in tenths of a second, the computer will wait for the user to intervene at the LILO prompt. If this value is not set, the computer will wait indefinitely.
delay=50: The time, in tenths of a second, the computer will wait before booting the default image. If this value is absent or zero, the computer boots the default image immediately.
message=/etc/lilo.msg: A file containing a message to be displayed at the LILO prompt.
linear: Generates linear sector addresses rather than
sector/cylinder/head addresses for hard drives. This is needed only for some hardware, but should not be changed without first consulting your hardware's documentation.
password=redhat: A password is required to boot the machine. Because the password is kept unencrypted in
/etc/lilo.conf, you should be certain that the file is readable only by root.
To do this, type
chmod 400 /etc/lilo.conf.
restricted: A password is required only if parameters are passed at the LILO prompt.
default=linux: Specifies the default image to be booted if none is specified by the user. (If none, use image in first stanza.)
