    Gee...all that MP3 playback and AGP graphics crap was really useful,
    but how do I get the thing to BOOT!?!? Fedora uses Grub as its
    exclusive boot loader. Grub doesn't work on my box. Is there any
    easy way to overwrite it with LILO?

    Well, the 3rd CD contains the LILO package. I imagine you can install it
    and then when you run it, it'll overwrite the MBR.

    Several times, actually. There was no option to install Lilo as the
    boot loader during installation, and the "linux rescue" boot option
    doesn't seem to work (nor do I believe it would have helped if it did
    work).

    Instead, I tried to patch Lilo into the system from a live CD. It
    didn't work, but I did get some interesting output.

    Sorry. I've never worked with lilo before, and the help file wasn't
    at all helpful.

    What does -r do? Is this the only line I need to use?

    Will -r find the config file, or will I also need -C and -b?
     

    It is this kind of arrogance that discourages people from using Linux

    I got it working now. Sorry about that last post.

    Your personal insults to me were not necessary, but your assistance was.

    Look it up. You have the man page. I am not your personal reading
    service.

    YOU got it working? I see. So Mr. Arrogant, what did YOU do that
    miraculously got it working? We'd all like the benefit of your
    brilliance, please.
     

    They were extremely necessary. Even YOU think you should apologise for
    your posts. But you don't really do you .. naw, you think people are
    here to do your work for you.
     

    For what? For pointing you at the man page?

    Look again at the shell output. I did the work that I thought was
    required, based on the information that I was able to obtain. The man
    pages had been excluded from the CD to meet size constraints, the help
    file did not once mention the -s option, and the online HOWTOs were
    not as detailed as they could have been.

    Ignore Peter. His advice is often blatantly wrong, and even if vaguely
    correct is so loaded with important parts left out that it's useless.

    Sort of: Read the manual page: "-r" does a "chroot" before anything else,
    and in this case is syntactically very similar to:

    chroot /mnt/rw/disks/disc0/part5 "lilo"

    Since you'll have chrooted to the /mnt/... directory, the lilo command will
    by default select the /etc/lilo.conf and /boot/map that it finds "rooted" in
    that directory. Read up on "chroot" to understand how this works.

    chroot is really, really useful in certain security configurations and
    testing setups where you are working with the image of an operating system,
    mounted on another operating system. It's exactly the tool you need here:
    "lilo -r" is juat another way to call that functionality.

    Unfortunately, you're correct. Peter is part of the arrogant "You're too
    stupid to do it right, just watch me wave my appendage and say 'oooh' and
    'ahhhh'".

    I swear, his workspace just be populated by clueless paperwork handlers who
    don't know any better and worship at his keyboard because no one competent
    is available....

    Crawl back under the stone on the alien world you oozed out of. You
    offer no advice here that I did not already supply, and you have the
    *cheek* to load your void homily with the above gratuitous insults.

    Not "sort of". It will do everything. There is nothing else to be done.
     
     

    What's the point of saying that when I already told him so!

    You discourage me from visiting the alien slimehole you bugged out of.
    Go back to it. Stay in it. Do not move. If your mandibles feel the urge
    to wiggle, bind them shut with fecal material.

    You may take that as an insult.

    Err, Peter is one of the most knowledge able and helpful people
    in this and other linux related ng.

    We should just accept his posting stile, at least one does not
    need to think about his answers a few month, like if RMS
    responds to your post.
