I was adding another boot image to lilo.conf and when i run lilo I now get
the following error

Fatal: read /dev/sda: No such device or address

This does exist as

brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8, 0 May 21 05:21 /dev/sda

I' afraid to reboot as it may not reboot. Here is my lilo.conf file

# LILO configuration file
# Start LILO global Section
# If you want to prevent console users to boot with init=/bin/bash,
# restrict usage of boot params by setting a passwd and using the option
# restricted.
#password=bootpwd
#restricted
boot=/dev/sda
#compact # faster, but won't work on all systems.
lba32
vga=normal
message=/boot/message
menu-scheme=Wg:kw:Wg:Wg
read-only
prompt
timeout=100
# End LILO global Section
#
image = /boot/vmlinuz
root = /dev/sda1
label = gizmo
initrd = /boot/initrd

#

This is stock 7.2 system

thanks
