OK, I've got Win2000 & RedHat v7.1 on a single hard drive. I went through and installed LILO on the first sector of the Linux partition, but for some reason unbeknown to me, I didn't make the boot disks. How do I make one now? I tried using RawWrite.exe and the boot.img, but that just created a install boot disk. I need one that'll load LILO. Any replies would be greatly appreciated, Thanks in Advance!!

Can't you use the RH installer cd/floppy with a bootprompt command like "linux rescue"?

If this doesn't work you can always download a 1-floppy distro like tomsrtbt to start it up and make changes.

Theres another alternative and that's loading LILO tru the W2K's boot.ini. It's described a few times in the forum, I think a search for "bootsect.lnx" will get you the necessary details or look here for my explanation how to set this up: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...?threadid=3373
