Boot Menu Label


hi! am new here and new to linux...
currently i have a dual win98 and linux(zandros) OS, my problem is i want to change the label of Windows_98 in the boot loader menu (lilo), below is my config:

boot=/dev/hda
install=/boot/cboot.b
message=/boot/splash.lilo
timeout=300
map=/boot/map
prompt
lba32
read-only
compact
fix-table
image=/vmlinuz
label=Xandros_Desktop_3.0.2_Business
vga=0xf04
root=/dev/hda6
initrd=/boot/initrd-2.6.11-x1.gz
append="quiet rw acpi=on "
image=/vmlinuz
label=Safe_Video_Mode
vga=0xf04
root=/dev/hda6
initrd=/boot/initrd-2.6.11-x1.gz
append="quiet 3 rw acpi=on "
image=/vmlinuz
label=Configure_(Expert)
vga=normal
root=/dev/hda6
initrd=/boot/initrd-2.6.11-x1.gz
append="single quiet rw acpi=on noresume noresume2 "
other=/dev/hda1
label=Windows_98


i have edited this and change label=Windows_98 to label=ZandroOS, as the seen below -

boot=/dev/hda
install=/boot/cboot.b
message=/boot/splash.lilo
timeout=300
map=/boot/map
prompt
lba32
read-only
compact
fix-table
image=/vmlinuz
label=Xandros_Desktop_3.0.2_Business
vga=0xf04
root=/dev/hda6
initrd=/boot/initrd-2.6.11-x1.gz
append="quiet rw acpi=on "
image=/vmlinuz
label=Safe_Video_Mode
vga=0xf04
root=/dev/hda6
initrd=/boot/initrd-2.6.11-x1.gz
append="quiet 3 rw acpi=on "
image=/vmlinuz
label=Configure_(Expert)
vga=normal
root=/dev/hda6
initrd=/boot/initrd-2.6.11-x1.gz
append="single quiet rw acpi=on noresume noresume2 "
other=/dev/hda1
label=ZandroOS


- and overwrite the file... the problem now is that when i restart the PC, the Boot Loader Menu (Lilo) still displays Windows_98, it doesn't change... is there any other way for this to do...

thanks...

You must run
Code:
/sbin/lilo
to use the changes made in /etc/lilo.conf
