ubuntu@ubuntu:~/slack/sbin$ lilo -P ignore
Fatal: Cannot open: /etc/lilo.conf

Wipped all distro of my harddrive, left Vista Business there ( which is needed for work purposes ) and started all over again. Now GNU/Linux will be slackware only.

Q6600 Core 2 Quad
Asus P5K SE with 2 GB ram
320 GB Sata disk
where 40 GB is lost to Vista Business
a Nvidia GeForce 8600 GT attached to iiyama 17" Prolite
