    Arrow See if this works...

    You should be able to use the live-cd to reboot. Boot your pclinuxos cd, then open a konsole.

    su to root and type these commands (with "x" being where you put your pclinuxos installation, such as /dev/hda3)

    Code:
    mount /dev/hdx /mnt/hdx
    
    mount -t proc none /mnt/hdx/proc
    
    mount -t none /dev /mnt/hdx/dev -o bind
    
    chroot /mnt/hdx
    
    lilo -v
    Reboot and it should work. If it works properly, you might want to write these commands down so you'll have them when needed.
