just thought i'll put this up in case there are some black and white color fans out there like me.
default the lilo boot loader in write text on red backround as you all might know.
if you want it to make write text on black background then open up your lilo.conf and add this:
if you want to have a custom title on the boot screen then add this:
menu-title="what ever you want the title to be"
don't forget to save it and run lilo afterwards for the changes take effect
