    boot menu


    when i download pclinuxos, i loaded "lilo" boot up menu with it, and thought that every time i boot up my pc it would bring me up to this menu and ask me which os i wanted to use, but instead it just goes staight to pclinuxos. i know how to bring up lilo, i just do not want to press the esc button every time. how do i fix this problem?

    You need to reconfigure LILO by editing lilo.conf and then running /sbin/lilo. There's a mini HOWTO here which might help. Also check the lilo man page.

    Try this wiki for adding a Windows entry to LILO:
