    Default Problems with Lilo installation

    Hi group,

    I have 3 HD's on my system. The first one is the master HD on the 1 EIDE
    bus with windows 98 on the secound one I installed Suse Linux 7.0. It is
    the slave HD on the 1. EIDE bus. the 3 one is just for data it is a windows
    partition.

    How do I install "lilo " to boot my system with win98 or
    linux?
    I looked for hours in the web, but it made me more confused then it did
    help me.
    what I understood is I can install Lilo to the 1HD even thoughI have win 98
    on it, cause the lilo istaller writes only some parts from the bootmanager
    in the mbr from my first harddisk and ignors win 98 and the rest will run on
    my 2.HD in the linux root directory
    and there lilo will do what I ask lilo to do in my "lilo.conf" file
    but I'm not really sure about that.

    thanks for all your help

    install lilo on the disk you boot from, usually hda, the master on ide0
    All you need is a boot=/dev/hda line in your lilo.conf.

    NOTE: if your lilo.conf is incorrect your PC will not boot at all, not
    even to windows. Show your lilo.conf here for confirmation if you want
    to.

    Have a look at the sample lilo.conf files at:

    Note: These config files are written for the current LILO release.
