This email is to inform you of release '22.3' of 'LILO' through
freshmeat.net. All URLs and other useful information can be found at
http://freshmeat.net/projects/lilo/

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

Project description:
Lilo is a Boot loader for Linux/x86 and other PC operating systems.
Lilo is responsible for loading your Linux kernel from either a floppy
or a hard drive and giving it control of the system. It can also be
used to boot many other operating sysetms, including the BSD variants,
DOS, and OS/2. The Lilo distribution includes full source,
documentation and support files, but no pre-compiled binaries. Lilo is
capable of booting beyond cylinder 1024 of a hard disk if the BIOS
supports EDD packet call extensions to the int 0x13 interface.
