Hmmm...looking at the book, IMO make that _all_ of chapter 8, and move 
the fstab and kernel to the end of 7, and rip [(lilo * bin86 * nasm) + 
grub] out of Ch6.  This also gives *the_room to have both x86 boot 
loaders appropriatly placed in the book without making chapter 6 like 
one of those 'you choose the ending' story books that have you bouncing 
all over the book.

*the_room - not intened to rehash an old, useless debate--I could care 
less about that one!  It's just another option that better presents 
itself with the proposed change.

DJ chat, do they still make those 'choose your own way' books?  I 
think my neice would love one of them at her age.  6 book reports in 
one! LOL
