Configuring LILO MBR

I installed LILO automatically onto the MBR, and it works. The problem is, the automatic installation failed to pick up on the second partition on the second harddrive, which is home to FreeDos.

I BELIEVE I have edited /etc/lilo.conf correctly, even using the install script, but it still does not offer freedos as an option at boot, and the lilo installer gives failure messages when I attempt to reinstall to MBR.

After editing /etc/lilo.conf, you need to make sure to run the "lilo" command to lock in all your changes This one got me a few times
