Dualboot Slackware and Gentoo
Here is my partitioning scheme for hda
1-WinXP-NTFS(I know, I know :p the evil empire)
I have grub installed into the mbr for Gentoo. I installed Slackware with lilo in Slack's / partition and its set to auto-boot Slack. My problem seems to be to get grub to pass boot control to lilo. Here's my grub menu.lst:
kernel /boot/bzImage root=/dev/hda6 hdd=ide-scsi
title=Slackware Linux (Another forum had this solution, it doesn't work)
I'm sure someone out there knows how to do it, so please help!! I 've got my hard drive setup the way I like it, I've reinstalled Gentoo from stage 1 now 5 times in the past month to fix partitioning probs. I just want to be able to boot Slack. Thanks!
It seems like these lines should work:
You sure you have lilo installed in hda5? Did you remember to run /sbin/lilo after making any changes to lilo.conf?
Thanks for the help linuxcool, but it turned out my problem was a bad superblock on the slack partition. This gave me a reason to retry Debian. Dualboot works great now!
Glad to hear you found the problem and you're welcome. :)
