Dude - what problems are you having? You don't indicate what kind of error or unexpected behavior occurs. To take a guess, if you have added a new OS to your boot-up options in lilo, but they aren't showing up, then you probably just forgot to run the lilo program (which you need to do in order to make those changes active.) If this is the case, run this: /sbin/lilo --J.W.
