Now I'm getting an error at the bootprompt:
LILLILO may overwrite Extended BIOS data area.

Before I upgraded my slackware I didn't have this problem.  It'sobviously
the EBDA problem.  The funny thing is that the problem goes away if I
disable the DOC.

There is a patch in the archives.  Perhaps I'll try patching LILO.
