change default login from linux to windows
 
Hello,

How do I change the default login information from Linux to Windows...

How can I change the minimum time that allows me to choose between the 2 OS's.

What boot loader are you using? Grub or Lilo?

Tinkster 03-13-2003 09:45 PM

look at your bootloaders configuration file(s)...

man grub.config
man lilo.conf

whichever you chose to install :)

Cheers,
Tink

Tinkster its grub.conf in /boot/grub/grub.conf

ashesh 03-13-2003 09:52 PM

i am using lilo loader...

ashesh 03-13-2003 09:55 PM

cd/boot/grub

no such fuke or directory

ashesh 03-13-2003 09:58 PM

i am sorry...but i have found /boot/grub/grub.conf

i think i am supposed to change timeout and default.

right now default=0 and
timeout=10

Yeah thats because your not using grub your using lilo. Let me check my handy dandy book here....ah yes the file you are looking for is /etc/lilo.conf

The parameter will look like this:

default=linux

Change it to whatever your windows label is. So if it says something to the effect of:

other=/dev/hda1
optional
label=winblows

you would change it to:

default=winblows
