I am a complete and utter newbie to Linux and would apreiciate some help on the following issues. Please also keep in mind that I know hardly anything about the command line however I am pretty fluent in using the KDE and Gnome GUIs.
My first problem is wth LILO. when I first installed Red Hat 7.1 I was unsure of where to put LILO and stupidly put it on the first sector of my Linux drive (hdb1) instad of in the MBR of my win 98 drive (hda1). I then reinstalled LILO from KDE and put it in the MBR, however, when I tried to boot to windows, all I got was the LILO prompt saying unexpected EOF. (I could still boot to linux if I typed linux). My question now is:- how do I fix this problem so that I can boot to wnidows?
My second problem is with the Red Hat up2date feature. It gets to the stage where I select the packages I want to install, and then proceeds to check them and resolve RPM issues however this simply hags the program. Why is it doing this and how can it be resolved?
My third problem is to do with package dependancies. I would like to update my versions of Mozilla and Netscape but cannot due to the fact that I dont have the GLIB 2.2.2, GLIBC 2.2.2 and RPMLib(partialhandlinksets) (4. somthing or other). The GLIB packages are easy to obtain, however my problem is the RPMLib file. I cannot find it for want of looking. Could someone please point me to where I can find it or email it to me. (I will give my address upon request).
Thankyou in advance to anyone who can help.
