Installing in a external HDD
I did a dual-boot with WinXP at the moment, and somehow lilo doesn't work for me. It boots straight away to WinXP. So do I have to reinstall lilo at MBR? (I think I installed it at the Linux partition before)
I just bought an external HDD which connected via USB. If I want to install Slackware in the external HDD, what is the best way to do it? And is it advisable to do so?
You'll need to install some sort of boot loader to the MBR. You could reinstall, or use a live distro to do it, or you could take the easy way out, and have supergrubbootdisk do it for you.
P.S. I'm not the best guy to ask about slack :) Good luck with that though....
If the default kernel doesn't recognize the external hdd then boot with the huge.s. But my money is on the huge-smp recognizing your drives.
As for your problem with the lilo not working, are you sure that you wrote too the MBR of the boot device?
