I just installed Slackware 2.0.1 from the Oct. 94
InfoMagic CD. Already on the system, was DOS and OS/2 2.11.
After creating the partitions on the SCSI disk from within
OS/2's fdisk, I made the Linux boot disk and root disk,
did the mkswap and swapon tricks, and started the setup program.
Everything went fine, I made a boot disk, created a LILO table
and installed it in root, and exited. I re-ran OS/2's
fdisk, and sure enough, Linux was listed as bootable. I reboot,
and when Boot Manager came up, No Linux to choose. I reloaded
the original boot/root disks, looked at Linux's fdisk,
and everything was OK. Still no Linux in BM. I tried to
boot the original boot disk and the root disk that was made
during install, and it got as far as saying it loaded the
minix filesystem, and hung.
What did I do wrong? What do I do to fix it?
