i know there are lots of discussion/reference about this, but i just can't make it work..
i m new with linux, and after reading some article, i decided to try slackware..
- slackware dvd
- 2 hdd (maxtor & seagate if brand does matter)
SEAGATE (150 Gb)
hda1 = primary partition - ntfs 20Gb - win xp pro
hda5 = extended/logical partition - ntfs 130Gb - data
MAXTOR (56 Gb)
hdb1 = primary partition - ntfs 46 Gb - data
hdb2 = primary partition - swap 2 Gb - linux swap
hdb3 = primary partition - ext2 8 Gb - slackware
installation step i've done:
1. install slackware using dvd
2. install lilo to superblock (expert mode)
3. create lnx file using
dd if=/dev/hdb3 of=/sda1/linux.lnx bs=1 count=512
4. copy the file to c:\
5. insert boot option to boot.ini
now, when i boot my pc and choose slackware v11, only several "L" appear without error code..
where did i do wrong?
here is my lilo.conf
boot = /dev/hdb3
vga = normal
image = /boot/vmlinuz
root = /dev/hdb3
label = linux
there several lines start with #, that's comments, rite? should i post it to?
fyi, i don't insert "prompt" and only add linux on purpose.
please please please.. help me...
ps. i can boot slackware using dvd with boot code:
sata.i root=/dev/hdb3 noinitrd ro
i have slax on usb flashdrive if that can be used to solve the problem? i don't know.. clueless =(
