Hi guys and gals, I'm having an interesting lilo issue in Mandrake 8, Please help.
I hope someone can help me...
I have "STF"LQ.org and apparently everyone else has normal
lilo problems. My problem is when I am in X and Drake
Control Center, the boot options for Lilo shows the option
for windows, but the block where you specify the "HDA1" it
is completely blank. No choice can be made. If I follow
through withit anyways, it will show the drive as ()
Obviously it doesn't work. Here is what happened which
caused this. I formatted my Dos Partition which was solely
Win98. I then installed an NTFS file system and
repartitioned for 3GB. I could not complete the
installation for lack of a serial #. I left it alone and
formatted the remainder of the drive for Win98. If I
fdisk my boot records it will boot to Win98. I can boot
into Linux with the CD or if I reset Lilo and it will boot
into Linux but it will not give me any option except for
default loading to my main Linux "HDA5". It doesn't even
ask me to use the RX boot, which is specified in my Lilo?
I'm puzzled. Is there any way to tell Linux to detect the
Win98 installation as bootable?
