Well, since you're egging me on <smirk>.  What kinds of things are you
moving around and why are you moving the /lib files?  Nothing should need
to move to compile or recompile.  You also don't need, and usually don't
want to move the old kernel either since once you've moved it you will
have to re-run Lilo before things will boot again.  Keep in mind that you
can have as many kernels in your root directory as disk space and desire
allows.  You put entries in your Lilo.conf file to point to each kernel
file.  That way you can start whichever one you want.

I guess I'm pretty confused at what you are trying to do ...
