Lilo Boot Menu Colors??
 
I am using DSlinux as a "master" Linux installation. DSlinux Lilo was installed to the MBR. All other OSs on my box boot from the DSlinux Lilo Menu.

But the menu is a fierce red color. Is there a way to change the color to a nice cool blue?

Thanks, jimbo

hi there,
Code:

man lilo.conf
has the answer. you need to edit/add in your lilo conf file the entry concerning
Code:

menu-scheme=<color-scheme>
              The default color scheme of the boot menu may be  overridden  on
              VGA  displays  using  this option. (The color scheme of MDA dis-
              plays is fixed.)  The general  color-scheme  string  is  of  the
              form:

                  <text>:<highlight>:<border>:<title>

              where  each  entry  is two characters which specify a foreground
              color and a background color. Only the first entry is  required.
              The  default highlight is the reverse of the text color; and the
              default border and title colors are the text color.  Colors  are
              specified using the characters kbgcrmyw, for blacK, Blue, Green,
              Cyan, Red, Magenta, Yellow, and White: upper  case  for  intense
              (fg only), lower case for dim.  Legal color-scheme strings would
              be

                  menu-scheme=Wm    intense white on magenta
                  menu-scheme=wr:bw:wr:Yr    the LILO default
                  menu-scheme=Yk:kw    bright yellow on black

              If menu is not installed as the boot loader, then this line  has
              no effect.

regards,
