Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Well, I've had to write my own lilo.conf to get LILO to work up to
only for it to hang there (check my other post to see what I've been having to muddle through)
All I want is to get LILO to boot from a floppy, and I really wouldn't think that the way my computer is set up is unique. So I'm really suprised that noone has made a more complex lilo.conf generator than liloconfig
There used to be liloconf (or possibly liloconfig). I havenut't used it in a number of years and don't know which distributions include it any more. It used to be standard with Redhat, but since the modern releases use grub, it is no longer included.
Thanks for posting the code, but unfortunately, I forgot to mention that I want to boot from a floppy (I don't want to mess with the MBR, nightmare fixing).
I want to set it up to where if I want Linux, all I have to do is put in the floppy, then LILO will boot straight to Linux, else wise just keep the floppy out and have the computer boot straight to Windows
