Hi All, ( again ) ( shanenin, Linux was already on the system I just reinstalled in the same partition and then installed windows which destryed my lilo... )
I am still having problems.... shanenin, I tried what you said about the rescue disk, and it was all going well until I tried to run the "/sbin/lilo" command. When you go into rescue mode the system mounts it into /mnt/sysimage. And when I cd into that directory my root filesystem is there, intact.
The problems start when I try to run /sbin/lilo, it doesn't work, I get a error saying that /etc/lilo.conf does not exist ? I have not got a clue what to do
When going to RH.com I find that there advice on the subject is: ( and I quote )
"When things go wrong, there are several ways to work on fixing them. However, they require that you understand the system well. We will present the ways that you can boot into rescue modes where you can use your own knowledge to rescue the system"
Thanks RedHat ( not ) Time for a change I think
Any help on this would make me a very happy ( and relieved ) Scotsman.....
