Today i formatted my harddrive C due to a nasty virus.
Almost out of a force of habit i entered "fdisk /mbr" at the
dos prompt en reformatted the c partition (slow, not fast).
After 10 minutes or so, the thought of my lilo suddenly entered
my brain, but it was too late. I destroyed my lilo with the
fdisk /mbr command. i think.
However, I am a beginning Linux user and i was doing pretty oke
with configuring knoppix to my needs, i could even burn a
ceedee under linux and watch movies ! I invested a lot of time in
configuring it and i do not wish to do it all over again.
When i boot my pc now, it does not give me the red lilo screen,
but immediately boots win2k, without giving me the choice
between linux or windows.
I am aware it is a stupid mistake, but is there a way to reinstall
the lilo loader ? And can i secure lilo in the future that i can not
delete it by accident ?
