I've never used the patched LILO, but I believe the only changes are that
it recognises the 'root=/dev/nftla' device and sets the device number
accordingly, and that it can deal with the fact that the M-Systems BIOS
extension has eaten a huge chunk of sub-640K RAM. The latter may no longer
be required with a newer LILO anyway, and the former can be worked around
by using 'append="root=/dev/nftla"' instead of just 'root=', just as with
other device names that LILO doesn't know about.
