I've seen that 0 1 thing before but I don't remember what the problem
is; the lilo docs may help.
Also make sure you don't move your drives after you write out lilo
if the bios drive number changes lilo gets really confused.
(hey nobody ever said lilo was good, but it does work)
Note you can not put lilo on an xfs partition, it will clobber the super block.
lilo must live in the mbr or non xfs partition (I've used swap in the past)
