Hey, I just installed Slackware and after that i installed windows xp pro. Before i installed windows I had no problem booting slackware but now after i installed windows I cant manage to boot slackware enymore. When the computer boots it just jumpes over slackware and auto boot windows. How do i fix this?
Bust out your Slackware disc, and boot it. There's a message that will pop up telling you how to boot your Slackware partition. After you get in to Slackware, edit your lilo.conf file in /etc, re-run lilo, and reboot. You should see both in the lilo prompt, assuming you correctly modified lilo.conf
I know this for a fact, because I'm a Slackware user. The initial boot screen of the first disc tells you how to use the disc to get in to your pre-existing installation. It goes like '<kernel_image> root=<Slackware_partition> noinitrd' or something like that.
