Edit files thread


I am ver sorry for this question ...i really am...
I am a noob to linux so pls dont come yelling at me ok?
I installed the slackware 9.1 on a partition of itself...
But lilo refuses to show the option to boot windows at the start up
I got the following code to edit in one of the forums:

/etc/lilo.config
other=/dev/hda
label=windows
table=/dev/hda1

First question

Is this code right?

Second question(dont laugh)

How do i do to edit the liloconfig file?
I mean a litle simple step by step thing

I guess that question expands to files that are not lilo as well.

I'm really trying to avoid microsoft so pls help me
Thank you

hey, to edit the lilo conf file, you can use the command
Code:
pico /etc/lilo.conf
pico is a really simple test editor, so it should be pretty easy to use. after editing lilo make sure to run the lilo command:
Code:
lilo
i dont know if the code is right, but you should just be able to add it to the end of lilo.conf, just add this tho:

other=/dev/hda
label=windows
table=/dev/hda1

(again i dont know if this is the right code for you, i dont use windows and i can't know if your windows partition is the first one on the first hard drive)

good luck

It should be safe to omit the table-entry for most
installations...

The lilo-snippet seems sensible :)


Cheers,
