Installed CRUX with default LILO, but GRUB's still there.
Hi. I installed CRUX following the directions and as far as I can tell everything worked but when I rebooted I was greeted by GRUB telling me it's settings are messed up. But shouldn't LILO have overwrote GRUB?

Sometimes, LILO has a hard time overwriting GRUB.
Be sure and run lilo before rebooting. You could also try uninstalling GRUB, and manually remove the menu.lst file if needed.
Hope you have fun with CRUX.oz

GRUB is able to handle CRUX quite well. You should be able to edit your grub.conf to handle everything. What is the output ofCode:
You may have the file in a different location depending on the main installation. Case in point, my main install was Fedora. So I use the GRUB file therein.
ozar has more knowledge of lilo than I do (never used LILO), so between those two suggestions, we'll get you going!

As jayd512 says, unless you just prefer Lilo, Grub does CRUX well. All you need to do is edit the /boot/grub/menu.lst and tell Grub where CRUX is. For instance. on this box I have Ubuntu and CRUX. CRUX is at /dev/sda5. Remembering that GRUB uses a number behind, I have this as my CRUX entry in Ubuntu's menu.lst...
