Thanks.  Maybe I'll just go back to booting from hd0 - that was
working fine before.  /boot et al still live on /dev/sda, I was
actually (originally) just trying to CMA, but it looks like there's a
hole in that cover, too.  (Hahaha!)

I remember when I was working with LILO In 1998-9, and I didn't really
care for it then.  Grub has, IMNSHO, a nicer interface, but it isn't
quite as robust (obviously).  I'll have to go back and look at LILO
again - maybe.

Ciao!
