Let me see.
Installing bin86-0.4.

I just read the book contains 'make -e' for bin86 which doens't work
(not here anyways) too well. Have to fix that. Compiling bin86 with a
default 'make'

Installing lilo-21.4.3:

And it fails here too. Hmm.

Removing /usr/bin/as86|ld86 and trying to use linux86:

That seems to have fixed it.

Ok, so far for bin86, though I would almost swear the first time I tried
it it did work. Perhaps I installed Linux86 out of a habit and didn't
notice that I should have used bin86 instead.
