Lilo on floppy disk now I want on Hdisk

Hmmm

I Boot from Floppy on Caldera's Openlinux Standard, but with win95 / nt4 / os2 warp /Linux installed & boot manager controling  the operating systems loading, I'm not quite sure howto get the LILO on diskette onto the /dev/sda2 linux partition without having to re-install Linux in its native partition..

I have 2, 1.2 Gb scsi HD's on a NCR scsi controlller

disk 1: Win95 in 700 Mb the 1st partition
disk 1: Caldera's Openlinux Standard 320Mb
disk 2: os2 warp 280Mb hpfs
disk 2: 32 MB Linux Swap partition.
disk 2: nt4 300 Mb fat
disk 2: rest is free fat

toshiba cdrom xm-3401ta

Is there any way to do this ?

Many thanks

LILO won't actually reside in /dev/sda2. In fact it resides in the Master Boot Record which is just before your Win95 partion. To get LILO to be the boot manager, you need to run liloconfig and supply the info on all the partitions, just like you have in your question. When liloconfig is complete, it writes to the Master Boot Record and LILO takes over the booting process from this point onwards. You can then select which OS to boot, or it defaults to the first one you entered when defining partitions
to liloconfig. Hope that helps.
