Bootloader and Whax
 
I have windows xp installed, and Mandrake 10.1, and the default boot loader for this. I just partitioned my harddrive again and installed Whax, it successfully installed, but the boot loader doesn't know it's there. I'm not sure how to "tell" it to give me the option to boot into Whax.

I'm using lilo, here is the lilo.conf file, I'm not sure how to modify it though, by the way, whax is installed on /mnt/hdc8/

I read that it needs to be able to find the file, i searched for it on /mnt/ and it doesn't have Whax listed, when I installed whax (from the whax livecd) it says that it installed to /mnt/hdc8/ but that was on a different partition, is it supposed to be in the /mnt/ file? The only things listed in the /mnt/ directory are windows, floppy, cdrom, and cdrom2.

I'm not exactly sure how to edit the conf file.
