How do I change the Default in LILO.CONF
When I instaled Linux last weekend i got Linux by Default in the BOOT up menu, I then added WINDOWS XP to the bottom of the list, this works very well.

I would like now to have Windows XP as the default, i have therfore been editing the file /etc/lilo.conf to try and do this ...........

I have actually moved Windows to the top of the List in the file but it still remains at the bottom !!!!!!!!!!and changed WINDOWS to be the default !!!!!!!!!!!!! but still LINUX boots as the default

GGGRRRrrrrrrrrr :newbie:


help please

After you editied the file did you run 'lilo' to apply the changes?

Did you run /sbin/lilo -v as root when you were done?
