lilo boot problem...*dual*


Hi. I have installed whax as a duel boot with winxp. But i have a problem in lilo with only whax showing. You can read here to understand better:

http://www.iwhax.net/modules/newbb/v...id=667&forum=4

I have posted under kai. Please help!

by the way, this is how my lilo looks now:

boot = /dev/hda
prompt
timeout = 20
change-rules
reset
vga = normal
image = /boot/vmlinuz
root = current
label = whax
read-write

Thanks!

That's how my Windows entry in LILO looked. Did you run lilo after adding it?

Yes, but did you run the lilo command (as root) after editing your lilo.conf file?
