RedHat 7.x upgrade to 8.0 lilo.conf broke!
 
Ok, I've just done two RedHat upgrades, one from stock 7.0 to
stock 8.0, and one 7.1 to 8.0 and had the same problem with both of them.

lilo.conf does not get written to correctly ... the "default=linux"
line does not match the label that is rewritten as "label=2.4.18-14" ... instead of the original "label=linux".

The result is that when the system reboots after the upgrade,
it will hang at "LI" because lilo is looking for an image to load under a section of lilo.conf labeled "linux" ... which now doesn't
exist. Simple to fix by booting rescue and changing the label
back to linux ...

Anyone seen this? I can't find mention of it on google or bugzilla but it seems to be a reproducable bug. Oh, and upgrade.log on
both systems had the same error about the lilo package upgrade.

The 7.0 system ...
Upgrading lilo-21.4.4-20.
Fatal: open /boot/vmlinuz-2.2.16-22: No such file or directory
execution of %post scriptlet from lilo-21.4.4-20 failed, exit status 1

The 7.1 system ...
Upgrading lilo-21.4.4-20.
Fatal: open /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.3-6: No such file or directory
execution of %post scriptlet from lilo-21.4.4-20 failed, exit status 1
