2785<li><c>map=/boot/map</c> states the map file. In normal use, this should not be modified. </li> 2787<li><c>map=/boot/map</c> states the map file. In normal use, this should not be modified. </li>
2786<li><c>install=/boot/boot.b</c> tells LILO to install the specified file as the new boot sector. In normal use, this should not be altered. If the install line is missing, LILO will assume a default of <path>/boot/boot.b</path> as the file to be used. </li> 2788<li><c>install=/boot/boot.b</c> tells LILO to install the specified file as the new boot sector. In normal use, this should not be altered. If the install line is missing, LILO will assume a default of <path>/boot/boot.b</path> as the file to be used. </li>
2787<li>The existence of <c>prompt</c> tells LILO to display the classic <e>lilo:</e> prompt at bootup. While it is not recommended that you remove the prompt line, if you do remove it, you can still get a prompt by holding down the [Shift] key while your machine starts to boot. </li> 2789<li>The existence of <c>prompt</c> tells LILO to display the classic <e>lilo:</e> prompt at bootup.

2788<li><c>timeout=50</c> sets the amount of time that LILO will wait for user input before proceeding with booting the default line entry.

2789<li><c>lba32</c> describes the hard disk geometry to LILO. Another common entry here is linear. You should not change this line unless you are very aware of what you are doing. Otherwise, you could put your system in an unbootable state. </li> 2791<li><c>lba32</c> describes the hard disk geometry to LILO. Another common entry here is linear.

2790<li><c>default=linux</c> refers to the default operating system for LILO to boot from the options listed below this line. The name linux refers to the label line below in each of the boot options. </li> 2792<li><c>default=linux</c> refers to the default operating system for LILO to boot from the options listed below this line.

2792<li><c>label=linux</c> names the operating system option in the LILO screen.
