I just replaced my disk drive.
I made a 1GB FAT32 partition on a primary DOS partition with the
DOS fdisk utility, rebooted, formatted the DOS partition and lost all
data, put the command.com program utility on the C: drive (/dev/hda1).
Unfortunately I could not reinstall win95B since when I formatted the drive
I lost my MS-DOS CD-ROM drivers, so DOS cannot access my CD-ROM.
The standard procedure when dual booting is to install windows first, then
Linux, so that when Linux installs LILO in the MBR it is not overwritten by
DOS later on.
So, I was able to install Linux with no trouble at all. I used the RH5.0
boot floppy and CD-ROM. Certainly Linux did not need any extra drivers to
access my CD-ROM, unlike windows which did not even supply the drivers.
(Toshiba, my CD-ROM manufacturer did not distribute the drivers on a floppy
either, though most manufacturers would).
Anyway, the point is sooner or later I will need to reinstall windows since
some users need to use Word and some other proprietary *that Linux can't
read, so my MBR will be overwritten and I will have to reinstall LILO to be able
to boot into Linux.
So, how will I go about reinstalling LILO in the MBR?
All suggestions are appreciated,
