lilo no longer supports root on LVM for whatever reason.

The fix was to add it to the kernel append line

root=/dev/mapper/root-hd4

Apparently, the LILO developers aren't really interested in fixing complex boot, but I'm not quite ready to move to GRUB.

But, anyway, I'm up and running.

*pleased*

Yah, so long as everything holds up during the reorg. My external drive power supply failed while I was reorging. I moved everything inside, and got it self-booting, but I'm on 2 of 4 disks in a RAID6. To top it off, there's 750 minutes left for the conversion from a 3-disk RAID5 into a 4-disk RAID6. Until it's done, it won't rebuild either of the 2 spares.

Fingers still crossed.

How have you not moved to grub already?

Grand Unified Boot Loader

Never really had a need yet.

This system has been in place since Debian Slink, so i guess 1999ish. I've migrated hardware, storage, made the move to Apache 2 and LVM2, but never really ran into a need to go with GRUB. It seems slightly more complicated, but I almost moved when I ran into this issue.
