This should really be discussed on owl-users.

Thank you for the problem report.

I've just tried on two different computers and I can't reproduce this.
The LILO menu is displayed properly.

Can you still reproduce this?  Will LILO prompt appear if you hold Shift
during bootup?

Can anyone else reproduce this problem?

We've changed LILO version between these two ISO snapshots.  Perhaps the
new version is behaving differently in some cases (a bug?)

Thanks again,
