grub/lilo configuration.....


I know this has been posted a lot and as my debut post it's gonna seem pretty sad...<_< But here goes...

I've searched all over the forums for my lilo problem and even googled it but I haven't found a thing....here's the problem:

When I installed lilo and went to configure it I got the error: /etc/lilo.conf: No such file or directory. I used apt-get to install it but maybe I or it missed something?

If fixing lilo isn't an option or fixing grub is easier I'll do whichever. My problem with grub is that I can't get it to load windoze no matter what I try...-_-;

You probably have to write one yourself, there should be a /etc/lilo.conf.example

If you want to use grub you should look at examples of grub.conf and menu.lst
It's difficult to give you a hint because you didn't mention your distribution nor
appareance of your config files, nor location of your installed OS(s).
