I think there are some versions that do and some patches, but it's
probably safest to assume that it doesn't. You might also want to
consider making the switch to GRUB -- it's more forgiving of mistakes
than LILO is.

If you're just getting started, you might want to have a look at the
article I recently wrote for SysAdmin Mag on Linux root disk mirroring.
It covers using MD and LVM to set up mirrored rootdisks. 

It was in the April issue of sysadmin mag...

The article covers LVM1, but doing this with LVM2 is pretty similar. If
you're doing this with LVM2, you'll probably also need the
lvm2create_initrd script so you can create an initrd image:

It's not complete yet (which is why it's not in the official tarball),
but works fairly well with most configurations.
