I think you can install lilo to the first section of the hard drive, or partition in question. During the RH install, this should be on of your choices. Not MBR, but the first section of the drive. Then when sys command selects linux, lilo would pop up, and then select RH.

Cool

he he, MC, cool. I thought you were saying 'midnight commander' and I was thinking "aren't we talking about system commander"

Lilo, but it's personal preference. Has nothing to do with anything else really. Both work, and work well for pretty much anything, I just understand the layout of LILO a little better.

Virussx, I believe you need to install it to the beginning portion of the physical drive, not to the first part of the partition. I will read up on that, and also check into system commander to see if there is something special.

Cool
