/boot/splash.lilo missing !!


Hi,

i m using fedora core 1. I have installed LILO, which was not installed by default at installation time, Fedora core 1 comes with GRUB as default boot loader, right?. when i try to run lilo at command prompt. it showing me "no such file of directory /etc/lilo.conf.

so I 'cp' 'lilo.conf.anaconda' file with /etc/lilo.conf. i retried with lilo command and it's giving me error like.

[root@mail etc]# lilo
Fatal: open /boot/splash.lilo: No such file or directory
[root@mail etc]#

when i reboot system and check, it showing " Linux: " boot prompt,and it will boot with fedora after some second. but it not showing me lilo boot image, in order to boot other OSes i need splash.lilo image at booting time. How do i add splash.lilo image?

please help me...

Thanx

Take a look at /etc/lilo.conf
Find something like the following lines:

message=/boot/splash.lilo
prompt
single-key
delay=100
timeout=100

and comment those lines out with #
Save, then run lilo as root.

If this doesn't work, post back with the contents of lilo.conf.
