I got it working, the only thing that *didn't* get completed was the edit to
The kernel was installed, so I added an entry in lilo.conf and changed the
it booted to the 2.4.9-13 kernel. :-)
It's weird though, I did two machines in two days, one edited the lilo.conf
file no problem,
the other didn't. The only different in the two machine was that I changed
the string during
the initial install to Linux, where the default is linux. In other words,
the "label=Linux" line in
lilo.conf seemingly made Update Manager not be able to add the new entry to
the file (??)
Dunno, but it works now.
