Passing params to Lilo with out a prompt ?


I know if you have lilo setup to prompt a user, you can add extra params to the kernel when it is booting.

But what if lilo is setup not to prompt the user and load straight into a kernel ?

Is there a way to cause lilo to halt at the "Boot:" prompt and wait for params, like hitting a F# key or something ?
