[BLUG] Meeting (Thursday?) and topics

If you did have a boot disk, the other handy thing to remember
(which I didn't know about and bugged the SHIT out of me for a while)
is the -r option. It takes the root directory of the system which
your trying to fix. ie - When you boot with the diskette and mount
/dev/hd? onto /mnt/yourmomsshorts, you can the do a
`/mnt/yourmomsshorts/sbin/lilo -r /mnt/yourmomsshorts` and lilo will
act as if /mnt/yourmomsshorts is the root directory.
It took me a while that one out when I needed it.
