Yes, it does make sense. Everything
is mounted properly when booting
from a boot diskette.

Again thanks for the help and
this info. My next project will
be to recompile the kernel.
Since Zboot works (see
previous message) I'm thinking
that LILO is on the superblock
of the hard drive. After I
recompile I want to add
a stanza to lilo.conf just in
case. are there any gotchas
I should watch for?
