try 'liloconfig' as root. what filesystem r u using for win2k? ntfs or fat?

u can try posting your lilo.conf file and your partitions layout (via fdisk -l /dev/hdx).

I'd really appreciate it if you placed your Slackware questions in the Slackware forum. I've already moved about 5 thus far. You know I'm not getting paid to do this, so why not make it easier on me and just place them here. Thanks.

BmxFace, I have premade a lilo.conf for ya:
=========================
Code:
lba32 # Allow booting past 1024th cylinder with a recent BIOS
boot = /dev/hda
#message = /boot/boot_message.txt
prompt
timeout = 500

# Override dangerous defaults that rewrite the partition table:
change-rules
reset
#menu-title="Linux to boot"
#menu-scheme=Gk:Kg:Gk:Gk
# Normal VGA console
vga = normal
# End LILO global section
# Linux bootable partition config begins
image = /boot/your_kernel
root = /dev/hda1
label = "Slackware Linux"
read-only
#============
other = '/dev/your_win_partition'
  label = "WindowsXP"
  table = /dev/hda
Everything is simple,
'fdisk -l'
Looks where is your Win an Linux
it should be smth /dev/hda1 or /dev/hda5 it depends

Add this to the end of the above /etc/lilo.conf

other=/dev/fd0
label=floppy
unsafe

Then u may later boot ur created disk.
Run in command prompt: lilo -v -v -v
