Re: [linux-lvm] Problems: reiserfs lvm as /



Peter,

"boot=" in lilo.conf indicates on which device's MBR lilo is going to be
installed (I think).

There should be a "root=" entry in lilo.conf as well that indicates where your
root filesystem is located. Can you send your complete lilo.conf file?
