LILO parameters: See parameters. At boot up, when the LILO prompt is presented (LILO: -- is it presented every time??), you can choose the image to be booted and add other parameters, like:

  • linux single (or 1)
  • root = /dev/hda2 (for example)
  • vga <something>
  • <something> RAM= <something.

  • The Linux BootPrompt-HowTo; Paul Gortmaker; v1.3, Sept 4, 2001 -- "This is the BootPrompt-Howto, which is a compilation of all the possible boot time arguments that can be passed to the Linux kernel at boot time. This includes all kernel and device parameters. A discussion of how the kernel sorts boot time arguments, along with an overview of some of the popular software used to boot Linux kernels is also included."
