    LILO - Timestamp Mismatch


    Upon installation of Mandrake 9.2 on my second HDD I got this message on bootup, does anybody know why I got this and how to fix it? My setup is two HDD's that have WinXP on them and the second I am trying to install Mandrake on. I want to setup a dual boot (actually a triple boot) of all three of my OSes. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated also.

    Your MBR must be pointing to the Wrong Disk or Kernel.

    I suppose your LILO hangs because it didn't write the MBR to the right disk.
    Find a LILO howto or use GRUB.
    Grub is more user and "use of no floppydisk" friendly.
    You can adjust the boot config DURING the boot.

    What I would like to know is how do I use Grub? When I install off the CD it never gives me the option. I would assume LILO is the default since it gives me this error message every time. I can't even get into my files because of this, I end up having to delete the whole Linux partition.
