Damn Small Linux install?!?

I'm somewhat familiar w/ partitioning, and understand basic concepts of linux, first of all. I know that the command for doing and hd install for knoppix is knx-hdinstall, what is it for damn small linux? I have window98 and mandrake on this machine, but have some extra partitioning space, about 5 gigs. How would go about dual-booting, how would i set up my existing lilo to recognize damn small? thanx///

Assuming you know where it resides on your hard drive(s), you'd edit /etc/lilo.conf. You can look at the existing entries for syntax, etc.


Make sure you re-run the "lilo" command as root before you reboot if you edit this file. Not doing this will render your system bootless, and you'll have to over-write the boot sector again, losing any customizations you've made.
