    Another Boot Up issue


    I have a windows XP pro machine that I wanted to setup as a dual boot with Yoper. I went through the Yoper install (burnt ISO to CD, then booted from CD). After resizing the windows partition, and setting up a root partition and a swap partition, and finishing the rest of the install process I am unable to boot into Yoper. My machine still boots right into windows, anyone have any ideas?

    --By the way I selected Lilo as my boot loader during the install process.

    Not sure if I installed inthe MBR but heres the partition info (from the partition editor program that runs during the install).

    /yos/ram/dev.hdb1 type=NTFS status=active size=11.72gb
    /yos/ram/dev.hdb2 type=ext3 status= size=6.64gb
    /yos/ram/dev.hdb3 type=ext3 status= size=658.55mb

    I only remember the install asking me if I wanted to install to the current drive, I clicked OK. Now it boots into windows just like it always did, lilo doesnt come up at all.

    is hdb3 supposed to be your swap partition? because youve set it as an ext 3 partition not linuxswap.

    If you state which version of yoper you are useing it may be easier for people to help.
