3.1.5 A Lilo myth

"Lilo is limited to 1024 cylinders." Wrong!

The newer lilo used after Debian Potato has lba32 support. If the BIOS of your motherboard is recent enough to support lba32, lilo should be able to load beyond the old 1024-cylinder limitation.

Just make sure to add a line reading "lba32" somewhere near the beginning of your lilo.conf file if you have kept an old lilo.conf. See /usr/share/doc/lilo/Manual.txt.gz.
