Boot menu options


I edited the lilo.conf, but my boot menu doesn't match.

My boot options are;
windowsXP
linux
failsafe
alt_linux
windows
windows1

My lilo.conf contains;
default="windowsXP
label="linux"
label="failsafe"

Am I using another loader and don't know it???

Thanks

After you edit the lilo.conf , you need to re-run the command: lilo to make the changes stick.
