you have to also invoke 'make zlilo' to implement the changes you madeQuote:>I have been running the Slackware distribution with kernel 0.99pl14c

(see /usr/src/linux/README for more info). Alternatively, you can
run the 'setup' script, skip the software installation and choose the
re-install step'. Choose the floppy boot disk option (use a blank, formatted
disk), and also choose option 4 (install lilo to boot floppy) when it
gets to the lilo install step. Skip all the other steps.
