Question switch to lilo boot system on RedHat7.3


Hello,

I just installed linux RedHat 7.3 on my computer, and I want to change the boot choice at PC startup.
But the fact is that RedHat7.3 got its own boot manager and that I unfortunatly checked fot this one during installation.

So I want now to change the options of this boot manager, or better to switch to Lilo in order to adjuste the booting parameters.

If you can help me, you are welcome

Kind regards :-)

You just have to create a lilo.conf file and the run lilo on it.

man lilo.conf


There are lot's of boot loader howtos at the Linux Documentation Project: http://www.tldp.org
