The version of install that I used recently, less then a week ago, did
not remind me in any way. As a matter of fact, I wondered weather it
even installed LILO at all. I found out when GAG was overwritten in the
MBR on hda1 that, in fact, it had been installed. I'm not clear weather
this has been corrected in any of your recent changes to the install.

My fault for not reporting this on the list Jean. I had forgotten that
you had posted that request. I was using os-bs since the very first
Linux install I ever had. Then I saw GAG and tried it, I've been using
it ever since. It's very easy to use and set up. Very well done. I
think most any body should be able to use it. The GUI has a nice look
to it with icons for most OS's included. It will boot up to 9
different OS's. It would be a nice addition to Indys line-up.

BTW, VNC is cool! That will solve a lot of problems for me later. Nice!
