    Boot menu


    It used to be when i was dual booting with windows, lilo would present me with a choice of what OS and kernel to boot. Now that i am single booting linux, that menu has dissapeared. I will be installing a new kernel soon, and i would like to get that back if possible. Anyone here know how?

    You just want to have another kernel option as a backup plan? If so (edit it after your system), do something like this:

    Code:
    image = /bzImage
      root = /dev/hda2
      label = GNU/Linux
      read-only
    And run lilo to make it update the changes!

    Good luck!

    maybe you have set the time to 0 ??

    so that lilo is shown for only 0 sec.

    just change this time to about 50 for 5 seconds
    make install not love
