In issue 67's “Best of Technical Support”, Sam Hart said he was concerned about security because the average user could read the lilo.conf file and get the LILO passwords from it. Two suggestions were to put the lilo.conf on floppy (reasonable) or modify the source code of LILO (okay if you want to do much more work than necessary).
The simplest solution is to just use chmod on lilo.conf and its directory. This is, in fact, what the LILO documentation says to do.

In the November article “Using Java Servlets with Database Connectivity”, Bruce McDonald talks about IBM's Servlet Express. The product is now called WebSphere and has been for quite some time. WebSphere supports the newest versions of Apache and IBM HTTP Server. If you are on the Windows NT platform, it supports even more web servers. It seems your information on the IBM products is not up to date. Please see http://www.software.ibm.com/ for more information.
