This is absolutely true. I've done it myself, and in the early days it was
painful if you didn't have the right boot disk handy. Now of course with the
BBC such cockups are easily recovered from.
However, it was crystal clear in Jeremy's original post that the kernel
booted and the machine stopped when it was about to load init which means
that LILO is not the problem because LInux has been LOaded.
