I've been messing with Slackware, it's good, but decided to try Debian
because of their packaging system.
One thing I liked with the Slackware setup (that Debian doesn't do)
was for a dual-boot box it gives you prompts to setup your lilo.conf
such that with a dual boot, LILO would stop so that I could type "lin"
or "dos" (or whatever I choose to call them) to go to either OS at
After installing Debian I copied the old lilo.conf file from my
Slack system to /etc (over the one Debian had made) and executed
/sbin/lilo and rebooted. It worked fine.
However, I also copied the old (Slack) fstab file to Debian. With
this I had (Slack) Linux automatically mount the Dos partition to
the tree as /dos. It didn't work in Debian. What's up? Here it
/dev/hda3 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hda2 / ext2 defaults 1 1
/dev/hda1 /dos vfat defaults 1 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
For comparison, here's the one that Debian produced:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
/dev/hda2 / ext2 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
/dev/hda3 none swap sw 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
What do I need to tweak?
