    Editing LiLo in Mandrake 10.1 Official


    Hi all,

    I'm trying to add my SuSE 9.2 to my Mandrake LiLo bootloader but can't get LiLo to accept the changes. SuSE is on hda6, it's mounted and shows in MCC as /mnt/suse when you click on that partition. Below is the modification I'm trying to make to LiLo in Kwrite, can anyone see where my mistake is?

    What do you mean by 'accept the changes'?

    Are you running /sbin/lilo after editing?

    Why not use the bootloader setup in mandrake control centre?

    Hi Chris,

    I meant that when I edited the LiLo in Kwrite, then saved and ran LiLo from MCC, I got an error message. But all this screwed up Mandrake and I had to re-install again, so I might not take any more risks with this until i learn more about what I'm doing, I'm still a newbie.
