I worried about it but it happed yet. my original OS is win2k server, and I installed linux last weekend, linux works fine after installing. but when I selected the dos to enter win2k the screen had listed this 2 lines and refused to continue:
what's up ??? Could my win2k OS be available now ???
if any way could solve this problem please let me know, thanx in advance~
I have an idea as to how linux would think your software partition was where dos was located. When you installed w2k, it probably created an ntfs type partition. Then when you created your software partition, you made it a fat type partition. When linux was installed, it ignored the ntfs partition, saw the fat partition and thought it was where dos was and added it to your lilo.conf file.
There won't be any conflict between the two lines. The other=/dev/hda1 just tells lilo where another operating system is located. The boot=/dev/hda tells lilo where to install itself. In this case, it will install itself in the MBR ( Master Boot Record ) of drive hda.
