Only thing i know how to do is use Eric's mirror current script but tell it to pull 12 down. just wouldn't know what to do from there.
The other thing is to choose between grub and lilo durring install. Unless Eric_FL found out how to use lilo after setting up his DMRAID.
I couldn't get lilo to work. The problem is that it can't figure out the BIOS drive IDs 0x80, 0x81, etc. from the device major and minor IDs. Even grub had trouble with that when Linux was booted. I installed grub using a grub boot floppy and the native grub command prompt. I didn't spend a great deal of time trying to get lilo to work, but I did try some of the obvious things.
I suppose another Slackware suggestion is to provide grub instead of lilo. I find grub much easier to deal with because it doesn't have to rewrite the boot sector every time that the configuration is changed. If one is dual booting with Windows that avoids having to make a new copy of the boot sector into a file every time that the boot configuration is changed. One can also edit the "menu.lst" file from any OS and not just the one being booted by lilo.
