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.
You're right, Linuxcool~ I checked and found it was based on ntfs type. And also as expected, when I modified this line other=dev/hda5
, win2k permit me to enter it again. Cheers~
Thank you very very(and more than 1000 veries followed) much, linuxcool ! you are cool indeed.
