Question Slackware 8.1 and WinXP Pro

WinXP Pro + sp1

Was dual booting slackware and win98se fine, decided to upgrade windows, that was fine, then when i wanted to go back into linux no lilo. Not wanting to fuggle anything up i just booted with a disk i made, but that was with kernel 2.4.18 which i patched to 2.4.19 when it cameout. Anyways, what do i have to do to get either lilo to give me a boot option or edit boot.ini for a boot option.

P.S. I feel kinda silly asking this question it is probably really simple just dont want to have to install anything again, everything is the way i want it.

If I'm understanding the problem, you should be able to go to terminal in root after you boot from your floppy, then simply type lilo to get LILO going again. Reboot, and you should be there. Hope this helps...

If you installed WinXP on the same partition where you had Win98 then yeah, you can boot your linux and do:
That's it! You should be running well, but if you have some problems post them back here and we'll try to figure them out. Good luck!

P.S. Welcome to LQ odbz!
