default lilo.conf

Hi all, in order to make sure slackware would boot after reinstalling it just now, i chose not to install lilo so i have my old one, that can boot the stock 2.4.31 kernel, and my xp partition. The problem is, there isnt a lilo.conf file in etc now :/ Can someone post the default or even default(ish) lilo.conf or tell me where on the slackware 10.2 cd's it is?

Or any other help that could be useful. Any help appreciated.

Then choose 'expert mode', andadd Windows, plus the new Linux. Then INSTALL IT TO THE MBR.

Then edit /etc/lilo.conf, and add your old kernel.

Here's mine with two kernels setup (I don't use windows one this box...) Uncomment the '#prompt" to get a 5 second boot prompt...

There is no default lilo.conf as it's generated at install with liloconfig, as said previous posters.
