Appreciation for Slackware 10 Disc 2


Disc 2 is really a wonderful thing....

Installed mandrake in my system which installed GRUB.. inside mandrake however there was no /boot/grub/menu.lst or /etc/grub.conf that i could fiddle with

in short I could only boot into windows or mandrake...

Disc 2 allowed me to reinstall lilo into the MBR. Yahoo...

Thank you disc 2

I don't remember if you already have it in your page, but booting to recover the boot sector would be a great addition

Yeah I know, this is not the first time I had to erase my mbr. I probably will add something like this to the site. I think it's an essential topic so newbies can prepare in case something like this happens to them.
