Hello, i have installed slackware on a partition and i have partitioned everything to my liking. Everything is installed fine and everything. Yet when i start my computer it just goesr straight to windows xp. Am i not supposed to have a lilo screen that tells me which OS i want to boot from??? Help me out plz. Thnx.
I installed slack after i installed winxp. And when it said wut install i wanted for lilo i did simple cuz i had no clue wut to do. But lets say it didn't install...can i install it from the cd? or something...
Distribution: FC3, Win2k Server, XP Pro & 2003 Server
In Stall Win XP first, leaving 6 GB (approx.) unallocated space for linux Ful install.
boot to linux CDROM, choose to keep existing partitions and load on free space.
Make (keep) linux as the default MBR and edit text on others, ie. WinXP so they will be displayed in the lilo or grub loader as;
Type #liloconfig where?? i can only log in as root using the boot cd...cuz it automatically boots winxp....can i do anything from there? cuz i tried the #liloconfig...nothing happened. thx for all the help so far though.
