I am having a strange problem with Lilo. When I try to execute Lilo, I always get the following:

Cant put the boot sector on logical partition 0x308

I get this even when trying to install Lilo.

How do I to do?

Thanks a lot!

as the message said: LILO can not reside on logical (extended) partitions, it must be a primary partition

Is there another way except for reinstalling linux and make the /boot as a primary partition or using a boot floppy?

Thanks!

AFAIK using grub instead of LILO as secondary boot loader will do it.
