Hello!

I have created a partition, and would like to add it to my LILO, so I can boot on it. I want to know what to edit an where. I need a DOS-partition to boot on.

I have foundout how to do by my self now, but can anyone tell me where to find the win95 lookalike windowsmanager for RedHat?

I dont't like answers like "check tha man-page" .
I've tried to add :

other =/dev/hdc1
      label=dos
      table=/dev/hda

When I type lilo I get the comment: must specify LOADER for BIOS 0x81.

I run RedHat 4.1 (or was it 4.0).
Can someone just tell me how to?


Could anyone help me out? I need a quick reply!

after you have determined the partition information for the new drive (ie /dev/hd? name)
edit the file /etc/lilo.conf adding the information for the new drive.

There is a manual page that answers you questions
just enter $man -f lilo.conf    or $man lilo
If you are using slackware yust type setup and you can setup your lilo loader from there.

run: /sbin/liloconfig
pick option 4: add a DOS partition to LILO config file
pick option 5: install LILO
or you can start from scratch with option 1 and make a new config file
