Manually Install LiLo via Installation Shell
Okay, I need to put LiLo onto the first sector of the linux root partition I believe....
Then I need to copy the first 512 bytes of that partition to a Fat32 Partition as a file called Linux.bin -- this will allow me to boot up Linux using the WinXP Bootloader.
Now I have VectorLinux installed, of course as usual the LiLo part failed and it has left me to do it manually.
Here are the steps I need help with:
- chroot or something to get the shell actually into Linux
- install LiLo onto the first sector of the linux boot partition (root I believe)
- LiLo CANNOT go on the MBR! It will corrupt windows. I do not have a floppy drive.
Here are my partitions:
hda5 - swap - Linux Swap
hda6 - root - Ext3
hda7 - home - Ext3
hda8 - winLinux - Fat32
Please, give me detail down to exactly what I should type cuz Im' still a bit new to the Linux command shell.
