done with the program '/sbin/lilo'. It uses '/etc/lilo.conf'.
Do a 'man lilo.conf', read and understand how it's done,
then you should be able to modify my lilo.conf for your
purpose (or use the one you already have):
(I need the 'append' part due to a brainbead BIOS in this Compaq
box, usually LINUX is able to determine the amount of memory
up to 64 MB by itself. Leave it out, using the wrong number here
can crash your system!)
I hope I was able to help
