Hello dears, I installed Slackware linux 9.0 with Fedora Linux Core1 & WindowsXP. Now I have been missed Grub boot manager and its appear new boot menager LILO. In lilo I have only 2 options for boot Slackware and WindowsXP. My harddisk has the following partitions.
hda1 to hda5 is Fat32/Dos file system
hda6 is /swap
hda7 is /linux Ext2
hda8 is /boot
hda9 is /linux Ext2
At hda7 I installed Fedora Linux befor, and it was installed and run correct. After that I wish to install Slackware too. So I created hda9 and installed Slackware onto it. Now Slackware is running good and new boot manager LILO is installed on System.
Can I Recover Grub boot manager with Slackware linux prompt
Can I configure LILO boot manager with Fedora linux prompt
I have been try to config lilo.conf in Slackware boot its not working, may be I could not set correct parameters to boot fedora... I need your's help..............Thanks
I configured lilo.conf and installed lilo. That was good experiance and its works good. But I would like to install Grub, I don't like Lilo boot manager with simple booting menu.
I was enable to boot XP/Slackware/Fedora all. So I booted fedora Linux with lilo, and then installed Grub, I also configerd grub.conf before installing Grub.
This is my /boot/grub/grub.conf's infomation..............
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
# root (hd0,8)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hda8
# initrd /initrd-version.img

title Slackware Linux ver:9.0
kernel /vmlinuz-ide-2.4.20 ro root=/dev/hda10

And this is my fdisk -l ............
