Editing Lilo in RH8


I recently used RedHatNetwork to upgrade my system, and it installed the new 2.4.18-19.8.0 kernel. Now in lilo, I've got two options, to load the new kernel, or the older one. Is there any way to either remove the kernel, or remove the listing in lilo, so I don't always have to select the old kernel?

thanks.

Edit your /etc/lilo.conf file and after saving the file run lilo with this command to make the changes: /sbin/lilo

Go into KDE and in the control center there is an option for boot loader config.

I think explaining how to do it thru a gui is good and all but what if the user doesn't use KDE, or GNOME... or which ever one you specify how to do it in ?? Just a thought.

Thats cool then. I was just adding a quick comment that may or may not be useful to the original poster. As we all know there is usually more than one method to achieve an outcome with linux.
