Make the boot floppy boot dos?

Post by Dick Goldber » Sat, 03 Apr 1999 04:00:00

I loaded lilo on the hda5, being afraid I'd*up my Win95
partition.  I can run both OSs without trouble using the boot floppy but
would like to boot either from the hard drive.  I have been told to
"make the boot floppy boot dos, then run lilo" and all will be well.  I
have fooled with the floppy lilo.conf to no avail.  I would rather have
two working OSs than a machine I can't use for business so I am
reluctant to proceed further without quidance.
Has anyone got some simple words of counsel?  I don't think I need
detailed instructions but . . . I sure could use at least a direction.
Thanks in advance.
