Maybe I made some mistake mounting the file system. I thought that -rw was for read-write. I will try some alternatives but tips are always welcomed :P
See you! Thanx!
I kind of figured that might happen; I think the read-only error is because it is running from a read only system, not because hda3 is improperly mounted.
'man lilo' says that -r forces lilo to chroot before running so try:
'lilo -r /mnt/hda3/ -C /mnt/hda3/etc/lilo.conf'
'lilo -m /mnt/hda3/boot/map -C /mnt/hda3/etc/lilo.conf'
You may also have to edit lilo.conf so that the whole path is specified like so: (This is from my lilo.conf which is on hda8 but also boots another install on hda5. Note the full path specified for the hda5 entry.
