It's only been an hour goof ball.... Of course people will help you. Take the entry out of /etc/lilo.conf that makes the refrence to what you want to delete.... That easy... May have to re-run lilo afterwards tho.

Are you *sure* you're running LILO as your bootloader -- many distros use grub instead, in which case you'll have a file called /etc/grub.conf. Follow the same advice as Jong357 gave you on that file and you should be set (you don't need to re-run grub after modifying its config file).

Actually, for Grub, the file is '/boot/grub/grub.conf'.....
