    Release Notes: A maintenance release to add a DEVMAPPER (device_mapper, or LVM2) compilation option. This support is only compiled if the appropriate library and include files are present. This release allows root directory specification using UUID in addition to LABEL. The keyword "nodevcache" has been added to the configuration file.

      Release Notes: A fatal boot selection bug on systems without a PC/AT keyboard (primarily newer 64-bit systems) when compiled with the NOKEYBOARD option was fixed along with a known table entry error on major device 253.

        Release Notes: This is a patch file to fix an incorrect table entry that affects major device 253. This device is used by LVM2. The patch file is in the 'updates' directory at the developer's site.

          Release Notes: Three keywords are added: noraid, nokbdefault, and nokbdisable. The allowed kernel command line has been increased to 512 bytes (from 256). A write-around for a common USB hard disk BIOS problem (sectors reported as zero) is included.

            Release Notes: Supports the Enhanced Multi-Disk (RAID) driver, which is still new to the 2.6 kernel. Drives underlying a full-disk RAID-1 (/dev/md_dXX) array are automatically taken to be "inaccessible" to avoid Volume ID conflicts. This action may be suppressed with the keyword "noraid". A command line switch (-H) allows installation of a boot loader on a degraded RAID-1 (/dev/mdXX) array. See the updated man pages for 'lilo' and 'lilo.conf' for additional information.

              Release Notes: Any keystroke (not just Shift) is now allowed to display the "boot:" menu or to escape from a stored command line. The device major/minor numbers were expanded to more than 8 bits. The security of the "mkrescue" and "QuickInst" scripts was enhanced.

                Release Notes: A new DOS/Windows utility, "lilo.com", is now provided to set the boot commandline. The -q -R -V (-C -m) switches are available with this utility. The boot time code is modified to allow boot selection based upon a partially-typed command. Additional bulletproofing has been added to the "unattended" option to prevent spurious control characters, notably "CR", from causing booting.

                  Release Notes: The interpretation of "unsafe" has been extended from devices to include partitions. Boot loader installation on a RAID-1 partition with a failed device will now proceed, although a cautionary message is issued. Booting to the operational device should be okay.

                    Release Notes: The Makefile has been corrected to properly make the DOS executable.

                      Release Notes: Matching of boot selection was altered from exact matching to matching the first characters. Compilation of a DOS/Windows utility, LILO.COM, was added. This implements the -q, -R, -V (-C -m -v) switches, and its primary use is to re-set the default boot command line (-R).
