You may want to take a look at the grubby man page. It is the program that does the update. From a brief look, it looks like you may be able to modify the grub.conf file to have grubby update lilo. But it isn't clear if this just affects the config file, or if grubby will really run lilo. Mikkel -- Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for thou art crunchy and taste good with Ketchup!
