lilo boot problem...*dual*
Hi. I have installed whax as a duel boot with winxp. But i have a problem in lilo with only whax showing. You can read here to understand better:

I have posted under kai. Please help!

by the way, this is how my lilo looks now:

boot = /dev/hda
timeout = 20
vga = normal
image = /boot/vmlinuz
root = current
label = whax

Um, there's no entry for Windows there...

exactly. But how should i write an entry for windows then? Thanks for your help...

tried this before:
other = /dev/hda1
label = winXP
table = /dev/hda

didnt work...

That's how my Windows entry in LILO looked. Did you run lilo after adding it?

Uhm. I saved settings. And i just typed nano lilo.conf and the settings were there/ But when i reboot its the same problem. Only whax...:(

Yes, but did you run the lilo command (as root) after editing your lilo.conf file?

hallo! It just worked out fine. Thanks for your help anyway. You meant: /sbin/lilo right? *im so happy* hehe...Thought i wasted my xp partition somehow during the install of whax. But everything works fine..

(thanks to whax forum)
