Dual-boot Two Linuxes


I'm dual booting two linuxes (I use Slack as my primary and am reviewing SuSE for my website). For some reason, though, I can't boot into SuSE. Here's my /etc/lilo.conf. See anything wrong with it?

What's wrong? I get a kernel panic whenever I try to get into SuSE. I know that /boot/vmlinuz is where the kernel is. And yes, I issued the /sbin/lilo command and got no errors. I had been able to boot into SuSE when using Grub (not Slack, though, so I went back to LILO).

I'd suggest that you set the primary lilo (it's installed
from Slack, right?) to point to
Code:
other=/dev/hda4
label=SuSE
and in SuSE, install lilo to the / of your SuSE partition ...

Cheers,
Tink
