       lilo.conf.

SYNOPSIS

       -v  Print verbose messages.

EXAMPLES

       Lines in the configuration file /etc/lilo.conf:

         #boot = /dev/sda
         boot = /dev/disk/by-id/ata-SAMSUNG_SV1604N_S01FJ10X999999

         #root = /dev/sda1
         root = "UUID=/dev/disk/by-uuid/18843936-00f9-4df0-a373-000d05a5dd44"
