Boot Loader floppy Disk


When I installed suse 9.2 first time, I selected VFAT for the floppy disk (lilo). During second install I selected EXT format. When I displayed the content of VFAT I saw usual . and .. directory entries. In EXT, I saw . , .. and lost+found. Where is the lilo boot details in vfat and ext format. Is it hidden? How to see it?

Thanks

The lilo boot details are stored in the boot sector of your floppy disk. To change it, edit your /etc/lilo.conf and re-run /sbin/lilo. To see the options that allow you to write this information to a floppy disk, take a look at the output of /sbin/lilo --help

Only change lilo's configuration and enable it using /sbin/lilo if you are *ABSOLUTELY* sure you know what you are doing.
