LILO Loader disappeared !!~~


To all:

I got problem with the installation of Red Hat Linux. I installed Window2000 Server first in my partition. Then i installed Red Hat 9.0
at the remain partition. I chose to use LILO loader to be my boot loader.
and i set it install in Master Boot Record. Also, i set Window2000 Server (DOS) to be the default loader. After finish the installation, when the computer is booting, it won't load the LILO menu and skip the Linux and just load the Window2000 directly.

Please help me ASAP!~~ Thanks.

It would help if you could post your /etc/lilo.conf file. It's possible that the timeout is set to 0, in which case lilo would just boot Win2k directly

yeah GRUB is pretty good. But LILO should work too. If you want to use GRUB, you have to remember that it refers to drives and partitions differently from LILO. /dev/hda1 becomes (hd0,0) /dev/hda2 becomes (hd0,1) /dev/hdb5 becomes (hd1,4) and so on
