Release Notes: Two classes of problem reports have been received regarding the recently released LILO 22.5. Both problems have been tracked to BIOS glitches on certain systems. Both problems are addressed with this update. Also, the boot sector backup mechanism is now handled in a more consistent fashion. The diagnostic floppies are now issued as image files suitable for booting from the LILO prompt. #2 now contains code to test and report on the known BIOS glitches.

Release Notes: The "mem=size@start" command line was added for 2.4 kernels. In the boot installer, the exit() call was removed from unbootable() so that error messages are displayed.
