Problem getting MuLinux to run on a Toshiba Satellite 110CS


I have a Toshiba Satellite 110CS currently running Windows 3.1. I followed the install instructions located on MuLinux's home site. I chose to clone the distro to the laptop because i dont want to have to boot using a floppy all the time. The install went perfectly, and told me to reboot, but when i rebooted, windows is still there! Im new to Linux and have no clue what to do. Do i need to un-install windows myself? How do i do that? Ive heard that i may need to do something with the BIOS, but the laptop wont enter bios when it boots up and i hit the key, it just continues booting up windows. I have looked at the other threads about Satellite 110cs laptops but they have not helped. Someone Help!

You can stop panicking. You don't need to uninstall Windows, nor do you need to mess with the BIOS.

You need to install a boot manager to the MBR other then the DOS boot loader. I personally think that Lilo would be fine for the job. If you need help installing and configuring Lilo we would be happy to help you.

I didn't choose a directory, it gave me a few commands, i think they were to use it in maintenance mode, install add-on floppy's, create floppy's, and to clone to the hard drive. I entered clone and away it went. after it was done it told me it put everything under C:/linux. Then told me to restart, but nothing changed. I will try the LinuxLoader (LiLo).

Give me a day or so to play with it. Sounds like Loadlin is what you want, that'll allow you to jump over to Linux from the DOS prompt.
