How to set up dual-boot in LILO for Slackware 10.0
I have two partitions on my HDD, partition 1 (hda1) has 40 GB of space, and partition 2 (hda2) has 20 GB of space. Now I have WINDOWS on partition 1 (hda1) and I want to install Slackware on partition 2 (hda2). Now where and when do I set up the option in LILO so I can dual-boot between WINDOWS and SLACKWARE, (booting slackware without now boot disk). Can anyone help?

Re: How to set up dual-boot in LILO for Slackware 10.0
You set up LILO through the command liloconfig (A little more details here: Slackbook ), liloconfig is run during the setup.

If it for some reason it doesn't find your Windows partition (unlikely, but still), you can allways edit the file /etc/lilo.conf manually. Too add the Windows partition you just add these lines:



Then run the command "/sbin/lilo" and you're done.

Umm... I already have WINDOWS installed... Now I want to install Slackware without using a boot disk to boot it up... Last time I did this is messed up my WINDOWS OS and I had to reinstall it... (Pissed me offf.......) So Now I'm trying to learn a little more about it before installing..

This will tell you how to dual boot it. It works, its how I boot my laptop. Slackware dual boot option

Try using FIPS to split the partition and redo the drive. As always make a backup of the Windowz drive first.
