Booting Lilo without floppy...
I finally got slack booted (and its bad ass :) ) but i would like to boot it without the floppy. I was told to run the command "lilo" in the command prompt... did that, now i have to edit /etc/lilo.conf, but im not to sure what to edit... Im also planning on connecting the computer to a router, so if you have any good information on that please help me out...
The Linux-Documentation Project's Lilo-HowTo
when you installed slack 9 during installation it askes where you want lilo to be placed you could have done what i did and chose to put it on the root partition of your hardisk and set that to be bootable later. its alot simplier than making a lilo disk or trying to configure ur lilo urself. well good luck to u
If you're dual booting with Win2K/XP Pro (don't know about XP Home)... You might want to try this:
1) Install Lilo on your Slack partition (don't laugh yet, read on...)
2) Get BootPart from http://www.winimage.com/bootpart.htm
3) Use bootpart to create a boot image for your Slack partition.
Bootpart is nice for multi-booting, it's works perfectly on my tri-boot box (XP Pro, Slack, and NetBSD).
Or just type "liloconfig" at the prompt and work through things from there.
You could set LILO to be installed to your MBR:
Then add an option for Windows:
Then add option for linux
