I just migrated my / partition to a larger partition on a new disk. I
used find piped to cpio which took care of everything except
modifications to fstab and lilo.conf and then running lilo. I made
those changes, leaving tho old setup in lilo.conf as the default and the
old disk installed until I was sure that everything was booting OK.
Then I ran lilo and everything was as expected... until I rebooted.
The lilo screen came up, showing my new menu option and all of my
previous options. The problem is that I can not select anything, so it
eventually boots into the default option. I can not select the other
options, either with the arrow keys, or by typing in the desired option.
Anything that I do at the keyboard is simply ignored and the default
option boots. I recently installed a new keyboard and this one is a USB
keyboard, instead of my old PS2 keyboard. Could this have anything to
do with the problem. The keyboard works fine after linux is loaded.
