Steve, you are probably looking for 'rootflags=data=writeback'
kernel commandline option. Just add this into your lilo.conf.
In /etc/fstab either do not specify 'data=writeback' at all for
root partition, or you must use 'data=writeback' (I prefer
specifying data=xxx, as then / and other partitions look same
in fstab).
