Shucks, mate, I've only been using Linux for about
2.5 years but LiLO always "just worked" especially
with Slackware by choosing the OSes you wanted to
boot while installing it.

If it had been as complicated as the stuff in this
thread, I probably couldn't have booted anything.

I agree with you.

Whats the point of installing LINUX, trying to avoid linux terminology? It doesen't make sense.

Installing lilo:

<enter>
<MBR>
<Default>

Now how much space did that take

That's it

It's only two steps. I'm tired of people like you that bash this method i took my time to perfect and made a step by step instructions. Please unless you have created a new alternative way please respect my alternative by stop posting windows hating posts on my thread.
