Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

i have just installed a new kernel (188.8.131.52) from the slackware ftp site. at first i was able to edit the lilo.conf.. so now there are 3 items in my lilo.conf
saved the changes and run lilo.. [no problems here yet]
i tried rebooting my system and tried booting using the new kernel... no problems or whatsoever. so i decided to delete the lilo entry of my old kernel. and this is where the problem begins. after editing lilo.conf and save the changes, i tried running lilo again and this is the error i received.
Warning: '/proc/partitions' does not match '/dev' directory structure.
Name change: '/dev/hdd2' -> '/dev/hdd2'
part_nowrite check:: No such file or directory
i thought it was just a warning message and thought that the changes were made. i tried rebooting my system and sad to say that the there are still 3 items in my lilo.
May want to run liloconfig again, use expert mode, follow the prompts, and install to mbr of hdc. Then, after a succesfull boot, add in the other partitions.
i have tried what you have suggested but i when i started intalling lilo again. it has error.. and when i tried to manually edit lilo and not using the liloconfig and tried to run lilo again. same error regarding the hdd2 partition.
yes, i have lilo installed at the MBR of hdc dont know whats causing me the problem. should i switch to GRUB?
