Clean Install & LILO


I currently have 10.0 running on my machine, but want to upgrade to 10.2, and am wondering about LILO. Is it reinstalled in the process (can't remember), or do I have to edit its files and point it to the new install?

Thanks

how are you going about this ?

Are you just going to use something such as swaret to take care of updating everything for you ?

Or are you popping in the 10.2 cd and running an upgrade ?

I am planning on using the 10.2 cd's and performing that way. I know that there could be issues installing over 10.0, and to be honest I am not sure what the best approach is.

on cd1 in the root-dir there's a file called "UPGRADE.TXT"
follow that and you'll be ok.
