slack disc mount

I mainly use suse, but i decided to give slack a go. during installalation i accidently installed the lilo on the mbr of hda (suse) instaed of on hdb(slack) now i cant get back onto suse. But i am realy used to using yast to do everything for me and dont no any basic commands exept the cfdisk. I realy need to mount hda1 and hda3, hda2 is my swap., so that i can configure lilo to boot into suse.

thanks ryan

You'll need to mount the partition where Suse's kernel is, then edit Slackware's lilo.conf and reinstall LILO.
You'll need to do something similar to this:
# mkdir /mnt/suse1
# mkdir /mnt/suse3
# mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/suse1
# mount /dev/hda3 /mnt/suse3
Now, get into /mnt/suse1 and /mnt/suse3 and check where the kernel is, usually under /boot/vmlinuz, but may be /vmlinuz
Once you find it, edit /etc/lilo.conf, add a similar entry to slackware's, but change image= to where suse's kernel is (including /mnt/suseX) and root= to your suse's root partition (hda1 or hda3).
Now run:
/sbin/lilo -v -v -v
That should've done it.
