[PlanetCCRMA] PlanetCCRMA is a good thing

   Do nothing based on this email, other than maybe make a suggestion to
people that are building a clean machine as to what configuration you do
there on a brand new PC - maybe workstation installation, use grub, etc.

   If someone wants to go off in another direction that's their business. I
think your concept of having a standard machine configuration for doing all
of this is perfect, and it's less work for you if we all just do what you

Hmmm, it does not require grub, although I have not tested
lilo (or used it) in a long time. In fact older instructions
included lilo but I erased that for brevity and because it is
now the default. Maybe I should bring them back...

I'm not sure if I have converted a machine from LILO to grub,
maybe once. It is not difficult but the documentation is less
than crystal clear :-) I'm not sure if I want to write
instructions on how to do that without a thorough
understanding on what could go wrong :-)
