I was using Vi to delete the section for a non-existent windows partition in my lilo.conf file ( mandrake 9.0 distro, btw ), and somehow is started deleting lines above the section I had targeted. I tried exiting Vi with just "x" so it wouldn't write any changes, but it wrote them anyway.
The section that was partiall deleted by accident was a DOS partition that holds the boot loader for my Windows XP partion. Anyhow, I know something is wrong because when I run "lilo" it tells me there should be a "To" value above the final section of the lilo file. I added the word "To", but it of course expects a value there. I have no idea what it wants, but here is my lilo.conf file ( with the word "to" that I added.
Anyone have a lilo file with a DOS entry that may help shed light on what I need to add? Remember, I am using Mandrake 9.0 , kernel 2.4.19-16mdk.
Thank You in advance!
