First off let me apologize for being an aol user. I am switching.
I have a 1 gig win 95 quantum c drive, a 3.2 gig quantum d drive the is
free to be used as needed.
i have a 500 MB first partition on D to boot linux from.
Unfortunately my D drive(which I just got) came with ontrack software that
allows me to use greater than 500 MB drives.
The ontrack banner needs to load before anything else. After that it gives
me a boot to floppy option.
I wrote lilo to MBR on C: but it hangs with LI unless I manage to load
One way I can do this is to have the non- boot ontrack disk in the floppy
when I start. That magically manages to load ontrack and then gives me the
non system disk message after which i take out the floppy and everything
is fine! Lilo works.
How to I get the stupid ontrack to load before lilo?
Is that the problem?
I format my d drive with ontrack software.
I then reformat the partitions that i want to be linux during linux
installation (red hat 4.2).
