Worked nicely. Wodim was able to burn the CD on

Automated well in Rescue mode. "chroot" isn't
stated but I don't know of any likely alternative.

All like clockwork. One remark and one question.
lilo.conf defaulted boot=/dev/hda1 whereas I
expected boot=/dev/hda. In any case, it works.
Many Web pages explain how to boot "single user"
with "linux single" at the boot prompt. OK but
I get a two line menu on the coffee picture;
managed to interrupt automatic booting but
couldn't get a prompt. What I really want is a
single user case in menu. No mention in
lilo.conf.man. Is it possible?
Thanks for all the help, ... Peter E.
