Question LILO and Windows ME


Hi.
I installed Red Hat Linux over a disk that had already installed Windows ME. I installed LILO in the first sectors of my /boot partition (I read somewhere that installing LILO in the MBR could cause some problems to boot windows again)
The problem is that when I boot the pc, LILO doesn't boot (the pc boots windows, without asking anything). As a result, the only way to load linux is using the boot diskette.
What could I do to be able to use LILO. Should I reinstall LILO at the MBR?
Thanks in advance
Regards
Javier.

Use the boot disk to boot into Linux - open a shell - su to root user then :

kedit /etc/lilo.conf

look for the

boot=............directive at the top

change it to

boot=/dev/hda

save the file

as root user again from the shell - type

/sbin/lilo

then reboot and boot from the hard drive as normal
