Slackware boot without floppy


I installed Slackware 9 and when it asked if I wanted to install LILO I said no. I said I'd use the boot floppy to boot the Linux.

And it worked ok.

The problem is that now I want to boot normally.

Can anyone give me directions?

Thanks!

change your lilo to reside in /dev/hda (in your lilo.conf), then write it out and run "lilo".

Change: "boot = /dev/fd0" to "/dev/hda".

Kde has a utility for making the lilo.conf automatically.

OK but, where?

As you can see, there is no lilo.conf and also there might not have a lot of other things installed too...

I don't remember exactly where it is, but it's in one of the menus on the panel, along with kernel configuration and stuff like that. It should work if you have lilo installed.
