lilo configuration


I've just performed my very first install of Linux (Suse) on a spare PC I had knocking about.

It already had Windows ME on it, but after installing Lilo, it jumps straight into Linux when it boots. How can I get it to boot Windows again?

make sure you have these lines in your /etc/lilo.conf:

# begin /etc/lilo.conf

boot = /dev/<your boot disc, like /dev/hda>
prompt
timeout 60
vga = normal # safest option

# Linux bootable partition config begins
image = /boot/<your kernel, mostly vmlinuz>
root = /dev/<your linux partition>
label = linux
read-only
# Linux bootable partition config ends

# Windows bootable partition config begins
other = /dev/<your win partition>
label = windows
table = /dev/hda
# Windows bootable partition config ends

# end /etc/lilo.conf

this works for me see "man lilo.conf" for more details on lilo. don't forget to run /sbin/lilo after changing this config file!!
