On my Red Hat 6.1 box (on which I installed every package except for
some foreign-language docs):

[root at dolphy /root]# which liloconfig
which: no liloconfig in

So I think the chances of it being in Mandrake are iffy.

<sigh> yet another reason to move to debian...  I could have _used_
liloconfig when I was trying to dual-boot Linux and FreeBSD.
