Tried to be 'clever' with lilo and now cant boot
installed slack on 5 or 6 machines over last few years with no problem but this time decided to install lilo to the superblock of my linux partition and not to the MBR.
Clearly on reboot nothing happened because it's still got grub there from a previous linux installation.
The thing that's fustrating me is that i've booted back off the installation drive, mounted my linux partition and have tried to edit the lilo.conf file but the system cant run lilo for some reason. Thread i've read say stuff like "from root partition run /sbin/lilo", but all i get back is "sh: lilo: command not found".
Does anyone have any ideas please?
