LILO HELP

Post by James List » Wed, 21 Feb 1996 04:00:00



I currently have three OS's on my machine, linux, dos, and OS/2.
I use the OS/2 boot manager to boot the OS's.   I want to get rid of
OS/2, but I am not sure how to get lilo set up so that it will boot
up.
I guess the question is how do I get lilo to boot before OS/2.

thanks in advance,
james liston

Hi James,

Question?  Are you going to remove OS/2 before setting up LILO?
There are other issues if you are not.

Otherwise, you should read the Bootdisk-HowTo.  It will walk
you thru the LILO install process.

Good Luck,

Dan

Just kill the OS/2-partition and let the bootmanager still be there.

The OS/2-bootmanager can be used *without* OS/2.

If you want to make changes in the partition table later, boot OS/2 from
a floppy and type fdisk. (and make sure you have fdisk on the floppy..)

I use OS/2 to boot DOS and Linux. Works great.
