(!) A Usable Example lilo.conf for 2 Drive Dual Boots

Answered By David Uhring on Thu, 22 Jun 2000

Using lilo's mapping facility does not attempt to fool Windows; it fools the BIOS. Linux Mandrake's installer generates a lilo.conf file similar to this one, actually in use on my system:
boot	= /dev/hda
map	= /boot/map
install	= /boot/boot.b
vga	= normal
default = linux
read-only
linear
prompt
timeout	= 150
message	= /boot/message

  image  = /boot/vmlinuz
  label  = linux
  root   = /dev/hda14

  image  = /boot/vmlinuz.suse
  label  = suse
  root   = /dev/hda14

  other  = /dev/hdb1
  label  = dos
  table	 = /dev/hdb
  map-drive=0x80
    to=0x81
  map-drive=0x81
    to=0x80

  other = /dev/hda1
  label = obsd
  table = /dev/hda

  other = /dev/hda2
  label = sun
  table = /dev/hda

  other = /dev/hda3
  label = fbsd
  table = /dev/hda
The Win98SE installation, BTW, is remarkably stable. I've been using it for about four months with only two BSOD's. Course, with four flavors of UNIX available, I really don't use Windows all that much.
