Triple boot Mandrake, Xandros, Windows ME
I have a system on which I would like to triple boot Mandrake, Xandros and Windows ME. I have 3 separate hard disks. I was able to dual boot Xandros and Windows ME fine, then I tried to install Mandrake on the 3rd disk. I can get to LILO fine, and then into Mandrake and Windows also - but my Xandros has disappeared...I guess the question is - how to I get Xandros to be recognized in LILO as another OS?
Thanks for your help

You have to reconfigure you /etc/lilo.conf to include the xandros kernel. I'm not familiar with it, so I'm not sure where it is by default. What bootloader did you use before you installed MDK? It is possible that the old lilo.conf (or grub.conf) is residing in your xandros partition, but MDK is using it's own lilo.conf. If that's the case, you can just mount that partition (the xandros one) under MDK, merge the [lilo|grub].conf with the new one, re-run lilo and all should be kosher."Time is an illusion.
