Re-Installing without /sbin/lilo
Recently, my Gentoo died :cry: (1 minute of silence please xD). I posted in may places for answers but didn't get away with a solution. So i decided to reinstalling it again. In fact i wouldn't mind installin t over and over again, the only problem is that i have on the same machine the motherf*cking WindozeXP......and i REALLY REALLY hate installing WinbugsXP.
I use LILO, and i always have this problem that if i have dual boot with LILO working fine and i make a new installation and /sbin/lilo to the MBR, i CANNOT boot anymore the Winbugs partition. Don't know why, i just now that always happens no matter wich distro i use.
And my question is.... if making THIS BELOW the *thing* will work...
1-format the / and /boot partition
2-I make the SAME Gentoo installation that was before BUT during the installation i make the SAME lilo.conf and DO NOT /sbin/lilo
3-Will Gentoo and WinbugsXP boot again???
PD: resuming,...repeat the same steps for installation but i omit installing LILO to the MBR and make the same lilo.conf that was before......All archives, kernel image, kernel map, bla bla bla in the same place the *old* LILO in the MBR had before...
any answer is really apreciated and thanked in advance!!!
