Question RedHat 7.0 on second drive


I just installed Redhat 7.0 on a second drive on a pc running Windows XP (second drive (10mb) is dedicated to linux). Installation ran fine, partitionless, and was never prompted to set up LILO. Created a boot disk, but the boot disk brings me to the menu that I got with the installation disk. Is there a command I need to type to boot linux with this disk? If I type "Linux" at the prompt, it takes me back to the installation process.
Thanks!

Lilo is for a partitioned installation

Lilo is not needed for a partitionless installation, as the Linux system is running from a FAT32 partition. Linux also has it's own filesystem called ext3fs (or maybe ext2fs) which you can install by splitting your drive in two (not as tricky as it sounds!).

You need to use the boot disk you were prompted to make to acces the partitionless installation. You should not need to type anything to boot into linux if the boot disk is in the drive.

Do you mean that Anaconda the RH linux installer starts up again? Remove the installer CD when you reboot.

As far as I know, this is the only way to access a partitionless installation. It's a good way to introduce yourself to linux without going through the steps of partitioning though ...
