I just installed RH6 on a box that only had a 50MB DOS partition to
During the RH install, I used Disk Druid to set up additional
partitions as follows:
/ ~1 GB
swap ~40 MB
/usr ~500 MB
/boot ~10 MB
When prompted, I told it to install LILO into the "/boot" partition.
Upon restarting the system after the install, it booted into DOS again
from my origional active DOS partition.
I tried booting from the emergency rescue disk that I was prompted to
create during the install, but it gives me an error "0x10" and stops.
I can boot using the RH "boot.img" boot disk, hitting F4, and then
inserting the "rescue.img" disk made from dosutils on the RH CD, but I
have no idea what to do from there.
I want to make the thing boot with LILO and ask whether to start DOS or
boot Linux (as default). I realize now that I probably shoud've just
told it to install LILO into the MBR.
Please tell me there is an easy/painless way to get LILO to do this
without re-installing totally.
