I've written a patch for Lilo to support installation on BIOS raids created
with the Device-Mapper kernel interface.
This patch should be very usefull in combination with the dmraid tool, but it
breaks the code Cristophe Saout wrote: actually his patch disables dmraid
users to install Lilo as they can use very detailed settings
in /etc/lilo.conf as a fall-back.
This code helps guessing the correct values to install the bootloader
succesfully onto the Fake-RAID. This can also be done with some shellscripts
parsing the output from dmsetup and fdisk to generate a
correct /etc/lilo.conf but it might be more interesting if one piece of code
can make all DM users happy. Maybe I'll integrate Saout's idea's later.
