1. Need Help. Trashed my OS/2 Bootmanager
I scanned the group this morning and saw related questions but not
quite what I'm looking for.
Here's my problem:
I installed a Slackware(2.2) release of linux on my new 540 MB
hard drive. When I configured the kernal I asked for it to be
placed in the superblock but it went into the mbr anyway. I
now nolonger have access to my OS/2 Bootmanager. This is
a 2 HD system, the first drive contains(or at least is supposed to
contain), a 1MB Boot Manager Partition, a ~170MB Dos partition, and
an extended partition with two logical drives which hold my OS/2
boot partition and an HPFS formatted partition. The second drive
is going all to linux, 3 partitions, 1 swap, 1 root and 1 usr
Note that I can boot into linux but that's all I can use. The linux
fdisk utility let's me see the dos partition and I'm quite sure
I could add it to Lilo, however it isn't seeing the OS/2 partition
in the logical drive so I can't boot OS/2.
Lastly I used OS/2's fdisk to create the partitions for linux and
as noted linux installed fine.
So finally my question(s): 1) How do I remove lilo from the mbr? Do I have
to reinstall OS/2's bootmanager once I've removed lilo or will it magically
reappear? Once I get OS/2's bootmanager back what do I have to put in
lilo.conf to make lilo active from the superblock?
Alternatively 2) How do I get lilo to see the OS/2 partition on the logical
drive in the extended partition of disk 1, I'm an equal opportunity kind
of guy so I don't mind using lilo to boot everything rather than bootmanager
but unless I can get lilo to see the OS/2 partition this won't work.
Thanks in advance for any help provided.
