Previously, I put lilo of knoppix in MBR and now I have removed that and put lilo of debian in MBR.
Now I want to put lilo of knoppix in its root partition, so that it can be booten from debian lilo installed in MBR.
Is there a way to do it? Hope it won't confuse ANYMORE
Boot into the Knoppix install and run /sbin/lilo -v -b /dev/hd??
replace the ?? with the with the drive letter and number of the Knoppix / partition and then boot your Debian install and in your /etc/lilo.conf you should have the lines:
Again replace the ?? after editing run lilo on the Debian install this will chainload the Knoppix install from the Debian lilo in the MBR in effect you will be using lilo twice to boot Knoppix. If you do not want to see the lilo screen twice then edit the Knoppix /etc/lilo.conf and comment out the prompt
and set the delay
values to something reasonable for as little delay in the boot as you want before you install lilo into the / partition.
