If you don't install lilo on the MBR then you see the Indy lilo
message only if the main lilo mentions the INdy partition as an
"other" partition.  That mains your old LILO boots Insy's Lilo and
then you hget Indy's prompt.  If you put Indy's kernel into your main
partition, with a root= in lilo.conf then you won't see Indy's prompot
because Indy's lilo is skipped.

It is too late for this version.
