Example 3 : files on linux partition, launch with lilo

The womp directory may be on the root of any partition, so putting it directly under / is ok :

Content of /womp :

Now put vmlinuz.womp and init.gz into /boot, edit lilo.conf, add the following entry, and run lilo :

image = /boot/vmlinuz.womp
    label = womp   
    root = /dev/shm
    vga = 788
    initrd = /boot/init.gz
    append = " video=vesa:ywrap,mtrr go=y oss=y mouse=usb kb=fr lang=fr"
In this example, user will not be prompted for choices, here we have selected an usb mouse, a french keyboard and french language.
