Hi All,

How do I find out if my Linux System is booting through LILO or not. Is there any command to find out if LILO is active or not, and if the system is booting using LILO ?

You will know if your using LILO or not, when your machine first boots, does it prompt LILO: ?
You can check for the lilo.conf in your /etc directory, but if you don't see it when you first boot up, your not using LILO.
