Sorry for the delayed response... been playing in another forum - Linux vs Windows =) hehe

I did get your e-mail... Is it just me or is it a 3 day transit?

I will send another e-mail from another account this evening to see if it reaches you any faster =)

I'll read that PDF 'late' tonight (or at least skim it)

Is the yahoo briefcase for files only? or can we type messages in a forum there too? -- I got questions =)

hi, i have problem with lilo.. :/

[root@fusk lilo-22.6.1]# ROOT=/s ./QuickInst

QuickInst configures LILO and installs it on your hard disk. It should only be
used for first-time installations, _not_ to update or modify an existing
installation of LILO. It will _not_ generate a valid installation with versions
of LILO below 22.

The installation procedure can be interrupted by pressing ^C at any time. When
at a prompt, a sub-shell can be invoked with the exclamation mark.

Continue ? [yes]

A directory /boot already exists. If you're installing a new version of
LILO now, QuickInst has to replace the old files with the new ones.

Replace old files ? [yes]


Making LILO ...

if [ -x /usr/bin/bcc -o -x /usr/local/bin/bcc ]; then make diagnostic; fi
make[1]: Entering directory `/s/root/lilo-22.6.1'
cd diagnose; make all; cd ..
make[2]: Entering directory `/s/root/lilo-22.6.1/diagnose'
Okay
rm -rf /tmp/liloboot bootdiagnostic.b
mkdir /tmp/liloboot
dd if=/dev/zero of=bootdiagnostic.b bs=1024 count=1440
1440+0 records in
1440+0 records out

make[2]: mkfs.msdos: Command not found

I would be interested but the last post was well over a year ago, and soltex no offense but don't just hijack someone elses thread go start your own, or at least read the lilo documentation before posting, maybe try grub if you're having problems with lilo, both boot loaders are well documented.
