This might be a FAQ.
I have installed RH5.2 (dual boot with Win95) and recently I moved all
my LINUX partition with PartitionMagic. When I rebooted the PC
The first tragedy struck.
Lilo did not run and the screen stuck on 'LI' as if LILO cannot find
the rest of itself. I have a boot disk
but, it seems that I needed an image from the CD to create a rescue
The second tragedy struck.
I had originally installed my RH5.2 with the help of my earstwhile
mentor. He had the original installation images downloaded and burned
on to a CD. He is nowhere to be found, having resigned a month ago....
On the other hand, I have Michael Kofler's book with 2 RH6.0 CD (?).
Well, I know the latest is 6.2 but am not willing to go out of my way to
purchase it.... :-)
Now any advice will be appreciated.
I am planing to boot the RH Installation CD. Question is that : Will it
go into rescue mode? I am plaing to mount the LINUX partition with
mount -t ext2 /dev/hda/mnt/disk
and then attempt to run lilo (as root ?)
lilo -r /mnt/disk
and then attempt to reboot.
Please advise. I am a novice on how to restore LILO, being new at this
kind of thing, anything is better than nothing.
Thanks in advance.
