I am setting up Linux on a Micron Millennia Transport Laptop. P133/32/1.3 12.1AM Once I get into LILO my display goes out and I cannot see anything. I think that I need some overrides for this, but I do not know what they are. Help!

The method to remove LILO is,
1.  Reboot your machine with some sort of boot up disk, like DOS start up disk.
2.  type fdisk /mbr and it will remove LILO from the boot sector.
3.  Next time you boot your machine, it will go to the previous OS.

Good luck!!!

The procedures described by ylai were not to 'remove' Linux, only to remove LILO from the boot sector of your hard drive. I would recommend doing exactly what ylai says, then, booting from your boot disk, re-install LILO.

  Did you try to Configure LILO. It is a pretty easy procedure when you are installing linux setup asks you to Configure LILO. I am saying it because when I first installed linux I didn't do it.
In setup you have to inform LILO what partition do is your linux at and only then proceed to install LILO. If you didn't do it you have to run linux's setup by booting linux with the boot and root
flopies. Run setup, go to configure linux, and then read carefully the instructions that are given by setup program to you and follow them, especially when you will be configureing LILO. Then try to reboot your computer.
