lilo


Hi. I've got an problem with the lilo. Now I've got on my machine Slackware 10.1 and windows XP. Before I install Slack I've used Fedora Core 4. When I have installed Slack I repartitioned the disks with cfdisk. I mark the boot partition (/dev/hda3) as bootable . And then Install this partition with the lable /boot. So when I boot my machine it boot's the grub in command line type, but I want that my machine boot Lilo. So I boot Slack with the CD-rom and change the /etc/lilo.conf file in this:

Code:
boot="/dev/hda3"
lba32

prompt
timeout="1200"
root=/dev/hda4
vga="791"

image="/boot/vmlinuz"
	label="vmlinuz"
	root="/dev/hda4"
	read-only

image="/boot/vmlinuz-ide-2.4.31"
	label="2.4.31"
	root="/dev/hda4"
	read-only

image="/usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/bzImage"
	label="Linux_Compiled"
	root="/dev/hda4"
	read-only
	optional

other=/dev/hda1
	label="NT"
image="/dev/hda1"
	root="/dev/hda4"
The partition table:

Code:
Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/hda1               1        4671    37519776    7  HPFS/NTF           prim     c: in XP
/dev/hda2            4672       19308   117571702+   f  W95 Ext'd (LBA)                   
/dev/hda3   *       19917       19929      104422+  83  Linux            log      /boot
/dev/hda4           19309       19916     4883760   83  Linux             prim          /
/dev/hda5            4672       16170    92365686    b  W95 FAT32     log    my d: in XP
/dev/hda6           16171       16413     1951866   82  Linux swap      log     /swap
/dev/hda7           16414       19308    23254056   83  Linux             prim  this is /home

and then I entered the command /sbin/lilo -v -v -v to confirm the changes in the config file. Then I rebooted the machine and it was the same as at firs time I booted the machine. Then I have uninstalled lilo with lilo -U and installed it with command lilo, but it still didn't work. So I think that I have to install lilo in the MBR. Because in the MBR is now installed grub. But I don't know how to do it so that will work. So please help me to solve this problem!!!
