In Konsole, liloconfig as root will do it.

just run liloconfig and reconfigure, or manually edit /etc/lilo.conf and change the line:
boot=/dev/fd0
to:
boot=/dev/hda (or whatever your first drive is)
then run:
lilo -v -t
to test, and if no errors, then:
lilo
which will install lilo to MBR

Congratulations on a great site.

I found a very small type in setnumlock.c in the editing config files section.

The XcloseDisplay(disp); line should be XCloseDisplay(disp); (capital C).

With that change the program compiles fine.

Thanks again for a great job and useful site.

If I may, I'd like to add to your CUPS howto:
Quote:
The printer brand/model support in the default CUPS install is lacking. You can add support for practically any brand/model printer by doing this:

1.) Pull down a copy of the latest foomatic-filters and foomatic-db-engine (version 3.1 as of this writing).

2.) Compile and install foomatic:
#tar zxvf foomatic-filters*
#cd foomatic-filters*
#./configure && make && checkinstall (if you don't have checkinstall, then susbstitute with "make install"...no quotes)

#tar zxvf foomatic-db-engine*
#cd foomatic-db-engine*
#./configure && make && checkinstall (if you don't have checkinstall, then susbstitute with "make install"...no quotes)

3.) Get your printer driver. Go to the linuxprinting database here, plug-in the name and model of your printer, click "Show" then click "download PPD". Save this PPD file to /usr/share/cups/model.

4.) Restart CUPS:
#/etc/rc.d/rc.cups restart

5.) Go to the admin page http://localhost:631 and set-up your printer.

Toshiba is actually considered as one of the linux friendly laptops, just google it out or search the forums in the laptop section.

As for an interactive tutorial, I don't know, probably not in the near future. I think that the site is very readable and I would like to encourage people to actually RTFM. Making it interactive seems a bit overkill to me. I don't know.
