2 commands at once .


Hi All,

Can someone tell me how to enter 2 commands simultaneously at the lilo boot: prompt ??

Suse support told me about a year ago but I can't remember .

Example : I want to enter

boot: "linux 2" & "manual"

I can't remeber if you leave a space , semi-colon, comma etc.. between commands .

Thanks

Paul

you can also use a && at the end of a command to go to the next line and enter the next command.. comes useful especially when compiling stuff.....

ex:

./configure &&
make &&
make install

Thanks Everyone ,
acid_kewpie,
"manual" from the boot floppy takes you to the installation/manual boot menu . At least it does with Suse 7.0 .
Thanks again
Paul
