Error using GRUB patch (and LILO questions)

Yes, I upgraded to automake 1.5, and that solved the problem with grub.
I successfully installed Grub and got the system booting. Being used to
LILO, I must say that is was a bit difficult for me. The
README_DiskOnChip can give more information on how to setup the DOC
(going through nftl_format,etc, etc). Grub unfortunately doesn't abide
to the BIOS boot order. Sometimes I want to boot using a stiffy (rescue
disk), but Grub will always start first. I know that you should be able
to boot from fd0 from Grub, but it is not easy (especially not for
somebody that does not know grub well enough).
So, I still prefer LILO. And yes, I actually got version Lilo 22.2 to
boot my DOC. Thanks Ilguiz. Here follows my lilo.conf:
I had to tell LILO to use the DOC as the first drive (bios=0x80);

Can you try the updated automake and autoconf packages from
I get only a couple of warnings with autoconf. Sorry for the
P.S. Have you checked the LILO HOWTO at
http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/docs/HOWTO/mini/LILO ? After the
search on the web I have a suspicion that your M-Sys BIOS firmware was
configured to pretend as a second hard drive.
