mandrake9.1 floppy lilo

using the normal mandrake 9.1 installation i remember it puts in its own boot loader that gives the win/linux choice - i want to avoid this by using a floppy with lilo on it (lilo i could with slackware 8.1) so i can only boot from floppy as i want to try it without doing anything to the win hard disk.

i cant wait till 2.6 kjernel distros start coming out! (i've tried the 2.6.0-test2 on slackware 8.1 and its pretty smart although a few bits are messed (no longer got high-res boot screens , and kde taskbar had vanished, but i fixed that )

When installing Mandrake simply choose the option to install LILO to the boot sector of a floppy disk.
