lilo ignores timeout


Hi,

I recently installed Mandrake 9.2 and everything works perfectly. Dual boot OK, but the timeout in the lilo config is ignored when booting causing the system to wait for keyboard input. The timeout is set to 50 decisecs, but obviously this is ignored.
Any ideas for a solution?

Thanks in advance,

Aart

please provide your lilo.conf and ensure that you have actually ran "lilo" as root after changing the file.
