RE: [linux-lvm] LVM



Mr. Tomlinson:

	I am curious what version of lilo in fact supports ReiserFS tails. I am running Mandrake 8.0, and using the lilo supplied therewith, and have been booting a / partition as ReiserFS (with tails I believe, how do I check?).

This used to be true.  Recient versions of lilo understand reiserfs tails, so you
can mount with tails IF you have an up to date LILO.
