(?) Multi- Boot LINUX, NT and WIN98

From Michael Williams on Sat, 17 Jun 2000

It's difficult to answer this problem since you do not give enough details about your problem. Answer these questions, and I can help you out:
1. Do you have LILO installed? 2. What partitions and drives are all the OS's on?

Hi there,

Current;y I'm able to have the multi-boot option. But I had another question to seek your advise that is I install another linux (Corel Linux) and the installation goes smoothly but when at the login screen, the screen starts to brink and it starts when try to start the KDE display manager. Pls advise.

Regards and thanks

Right, here's a solution. As far as I can tell, all you need to do is edit your /etc/lilo.conf file to include the following text:

boot=/dev/hda
read-only
prompt
timeout=50
vga=ext

#Windows 98
other=/dev/hda1
label=dos
table=/dev/hda

#Linux
image=/boot/linux   #Put the name of your kernel here
root=/dev/hda3
label=linux

#Windows NT
other=/dev/hda2
label=winnt
table=/dev/hda

You can edit it by typing:

pico /etc/lilo.conf

Then type:

lilo

To install lilo to the MBR

Obviously, you can use any text editor. That should solve your problem, unsless of course something else is wrong :)
