You have to rerun lilo after mk_initrd or so I was told. No matter when

I stand corrected (I don't need an initrd, so I usually forget this stage).

However, the chances are that given the person involved appears to have
little linux experience, they are unlikely to have a setup requiring an
initrd (ReiserFS/NFS/SCSI root). OK, they might have SCSI disks, but
I'd wager that an initrd is unnecessary. I'm trying to keep things as
simple as possible :-)
