hi,
(First part of the message in English then repeated in French)
I am in the same confusing with the linpus Lite distribution from "aspire one" that I tried to install on an another computer from the recovery CD.
After install it cannot boot and I changed the grub.conf with no result
I dump the MBR and it seems that the bootloader is Lilo and not Grub but there is not file /etc/lilo.conf .

I don't know where to change the configuration file for lilo.
and I have no success to install grub on the boot disk : the MBR is not updated


J'ai le problème similaire avec une distro linpus lite tiré d'un CD de l'aspire one que j'ai voulu testé sur un autre PC.
Après avoir bidouillé en vain le grub.conf j'ai dumpé le MBR or il semble que grub n'est pas installé mais plutôt Lilo, pour autant il n'y a pas de fichier /etc/lilo.conf dans la distrib
