LILO release 22.4.1 is based upon Werner Almesberger's LILO version 21.

Version 22.4.1 is a minor update to version 22.4. It fixes typographical
errors which are masked by the gcc (2.96) pre-processor. Version 22.4 is
still usable.

Version 22.4 is a minor update to version 22.3.

o Virtual booting is supported with new keywords 'vmdefault', 'vmdisable',
and 'vmwarn'.


Version 22.3 is a major update to version 22.2.

o The distribution consists of /sbin/lilo ONLY; all *.b files are
incorporated within this file (builtin).
o A bitmap file header editor is incorporated (-E flag).
o The map file unifies the second stage, chain, message file, and bitmap
files.
o -E, -F, and -B flags are added (see man pages).
o Chain loader will now pass a command line to a second LILO installation.
o Boot protocol 0203h is now supported. "large-memory" option added to
force initial ramdisk loading to highest memory.
o "vga=" on command line allows any radix input.


Versions 22.2, 22.1, 22.0 are major updates to version 21.


*** THE VERSION 22 RAID1 IMPLEMENTATION IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH VERSION 21.

Those using version 21 should read 'README.raid1' before installing these
new codes. There is a compatibility mode (lilo -x mbr-only) for existing
RAID1 installations which are not going to be converted to the Version 22
implementation.


Source code is available for download from:

http://brun.dyndns.org/pub/linux/lilo (developer's site)

Or from the main distribution site:

ftp://metalab.unc.edu/pub/Linux/system/boot/lilo (please use)


See the distribution file 'CHANGES' for details of the differences between
22.4.1 and prior releases.
