When partitioning the hard drive, in my case /usr takes up as much space as everything else comined. So i usually put /usr on a partition that is about half the hard drive and split the rest between / and /home. Along with however much swap you want.

ah...i'am still having the same difficulties over here...lba32, i read the manual for lilo.conf...it didn't mention anything specific about it, so i figured just put it in there on its own line, "lba32" ...however, it doesn't work either... could it be how i install lilo? i've tried serveral ways already...

open to suggestions, *more*
