Question triple-boot LILO XP+MDK9.2+Slack 9.1


I'm trying to add Slackware to Lilo.conf,but

Finally thanx to Knoppix live CD I'm able to post how my /etc/lilo.conf in MDK 9.2 looks like:

image=/boot/wmlinuz
label="linux"
root+/dev/hdc5
initrd=/boot initrd.img
append="devfs=mount hda=ide-scsi acpi=ht resume=/dev/hdc6 splash=silent"
vga=788
read-only

so I added:

image=/boot/wmlinuz
label="Slack"
root=/dev/hdc9 (which is / of Slack 9.1)
initrd=/boot/initrd.img
append.....same as above....
vga=788
read-only

..etc........

So my question is how to tell Lilo in Mandrake that I wants to boot Slack (for 1st time)?The changes above I made with #vi and saved with /sbin/lilo.But can't see at Lilo boot screen.

I browsed here but can't find any post same to my problem.

Try to rename the kernel name cauz it's maybe make confusion for LILO

Also, when you have typed : /sbin/lilo , can you copy/past the output text plz?

Yes!

But now, when you reboot, you didn't have the linux-slackware option?
If u can't choose, you maybe have a " boot: " prompt ... Type :

linux-slackware
