I have a computer that uses LILO to dual boot SuSE Linux and Windows 98, and I need to reinstall Windows, but lasst time I did that it wrote over the partition, and I had to reinstall Linux and LILO. Is there a way I can reinstall Windows without having to do all the rest again?
Ofcourse you can! After installing windows, use your Linux boot floppy or boot cd-rom to boot into Linux. Then edit the file /etc/lilo.conf Add the following line to lilo.conf at top: boot=/dev/hda then run the command /sbin/lilo the reboot. Now u'll see OS switching screen of LILO Enjoy!!! for more info: http://www.control-escape.com/linux/lilo-cfg.html
