How do you configure LILO under Mandrake?

Ok, I'm in the process of installing Slackware 9.0 on my computer along with Mandrake 9.1. I know how to install Slack and everything but I like the bootloader I use for Mandrake. Whenever I go into a terminal and type liloconfig it didn't being up a configuration menu like in Slack. Anybody know how I can config the Mandrake LILO so that I can have it set to load Slackware as well as Mandrake and Windows?

Edit /etc/lilo.conf and then run lilo -v
Use the KDE Control Panel -> System -> Boot Manager
Use the Mandrake Control Centre -> Boot -> DrakBoot, top right Configure button.

Remember entries are relative to the current filesystem and what's mounted where, so your Slackware 9.0 kernel images might be in /mnt/hdb5slack/boot/ instead of /boot.

Hi Ekim Gram

To edit "Mandrakes" lilo.conf file do

K - Configuration - KDE Control Centre - System - Boot Manager - Administrator mode button - type in your ROOT Password - then Expert tab.

Just put your Slack entry in - if your installing Mandrake last after Win/Slack make sure you mount Slack's boot partition in Mandrake to enable "Mandrakes" lilo.conf to gain access to the Slack kernel image etc other wise "Mandrakes" lilo.conf won't be able to "point correctly" - remember to /sbin/lilo to add your new Slack entry to the Lilo boot menu.
