set LILO as secondary boot mgr
Posted on 2000-02-26
I have two HDs in my system. corel linux 1.0 is installed on the secondary drive. the os2 boot manager changes hidden state of booting partitions, LILO operates different. so when I start former OSs from LILO those hidden won't boot up. (boot starts, soon stops with serious error msg). Though, lilo can route me to os2 btmgr. but I want life easier. here are my questions:
1. os2 can route back to boot linux. how can linux boot after removing LILO? please exclude solutions with floppy.
2. Can I force LILO to let os2 boot first?
I edited the lilo.conf file but no changes appeared on further bootups, even the labels stayed the same! I guess this's 'couse LILO is somewhere on my primary disk, too, right? One more thing: I installed linux first with the primary disk unplugged. well, didn't work, of course. Removing os2 btmgr is not a solution for me. Appreciate your help.
