You can pass it at your lilo prompt or with an append line in your lilo.conf:

5 - Type of your isdn interface card 5 = Fritz! Card

2 - Type of your isdn lowlevel protocol 2 = EDSS1

irq - irq of your card

iobase - iobase of your card in hexadecimal notation

So I have this in my lilo.conf:


Just put it below an kernel image and rerun lilo.
