CentOS / Slackware Dual boot Problem
 
I have a slackware machine that i regularly use. Today I decided to install CentOS aswell on some free disk space.

I installed centos with grub on /dev/hda3 (not on the MBR). I'm trying to boot it with LILO from my slackware box.

here is my OS part of lilo:
# Linux bootable partition config begins
image = /boot/vmlinuz-generic-2.6.13
initrd = /boot/initrd.gz
root = /dev/hda1
label = Linux-2.6.13
read-only
image = /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.9-22.EL
initrd = /boot/initrd-2.6.9-22.EL.img
map = System.map-2.6.9-22.EL
root = /dev/hda3
label = CentOS
read-only
# Linux bootable partition config ends

when i enter in 'lilo' at a prompt, I get this:
root@slacker:/# lilo
Added Linux-2.6.13 *
Fatal: open /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.9-22.EL: Not a directory

Should i not have installed grub on my centos machine? Or is it something else?

Have you got a separate /boot partition that both installations
share? Otherwise this won't work. Next alternative is to have
the bootloader for the secondary install sit in its own / and
just tell the primary bootloader to use it as if it were booting
a windows install ...


Cheers,
