/etc/lilo.conf contains the line:
You currently have:
edit lilo.conf, set:
After you do that run lilo (or /sbin/lilo if it is not in your path).
All of this has to be done as root.
One option you may find useful is to add something like:
to the section of the image "linux". This will allow you to simply write
"l" instead of "linux" at the LILO prompt.
man lilo.conf for the exact syntax.
Chances are that your distro has a GUI for doing that. If you don't manage
with editing lilo.conf then please write us your distro (and version).
