I was trying to either a) get GRUB/LILO to work or b) get a Linux entry in Windows XP's boot.ini file. I followed the directions at [address below] to try and set it up, but when I ran the "Linux" option from the XP boot menu, it said:
[here's the address for that site, it wouldn't let me post it because i don't have 5 posts
; just delete the spaces and you'll have the addr] ht tp://jaeger.porp heus.net/linux/ntldr.php
"The following file is missing or corrupted:
Please re-install the file."
So I went to dll-files.com and reinstalled that file, only to get the same error. Here's my boot.ini file:
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition" /fastdetect
c:\bootsec.lnx="Red Hat Linux 9"
And here's my /etc/lilo.conf file on my Linux HD (I have separate HDs for XP and RH):
When I ran lilo, it gave me no errors except the warning that I wasn't putting it on the hda drive. Has anyone else had this problem or can someone tell me what's wrong?
