Lilo.conf append "prof=office" , what is it?
I have seen this in lilo.conf, and on message boards at times when people paste their lilo.conf files... I have tried searching for it, but the closest I get is Profile=1 for the kernel. Which I have a suspicion is not the same thing.
Can someone tell me what it is used for? To me it looks like a user or system profile switch, say I have an Office profile with PCMCIA ethernet card and modem, and a Home profile with a docking station. Am I thinking right?
If so, how can I use this so I don't have to keep answering questions about changed hardware?
Thanks in advance!
