Can't boot Openindiana in a winxp/slackware14.1/OI multiboot system


hi, i've got openindiana installed along with slackware14.1 and windows on an USB hard drive.

the sequence of my installation is windows -> openindiana -> slackware 14.1.

the bootloader is using slackware LILO. on the LILO menu, i only have windows and SL, Openindiana is missing. how do i get back and boot the Openindiana partition (sdb2)?

here're the setup:

Code:
bash-4.2# fdisk -l

just looking, I'd say this is a Slackware question. Because you are using Slackware lilo to do something. even though it is not a Slackware OS you want Slackware lilo to deal with. You should ask this be moved to Slackware, you might get a better response to this question.

Just in case someone experiencing the same issue got in here, here is the slackware forum thread with the solution.
