Linux Loader (or Lilo)

I have found a new definition.

LILO - The Linux Loader

>From the LILO README:

LILO is a versatile boot loader for Linux. It does not depend on a

specific file system, can boot Linux kernel images from floppy disks

and hard disks, and can even boot other operating systems. One of up

to sixteen differernt images can be selected at boot time. Various

parameters, such as the root device, can be set indepenantly for each

kernel. LILO can even be used as the master boot record.
