    Well, that's one way of "fixing" the problem
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    sad because removing any linux install is sad

    btw Yoper is a fine distro.

    All right I'm late ...
    You got a fatal error because instead of copy bzImage in the boot directory you have copied the arch/i386/bootvmlinux.
    make the right copy ..

    Scourge i know exactly the frustation, i can't recall how many times i just left gentoo for what it was because of boot failure problems. GRUB is haunting me. i won't be using grub if it can be avoided.

    but zad can you explain it somewhat more detailed?
    i tried ubuntu today and installed it into my slackware 10.1 lilo
    i indeed had to make a initrd = /other_distribution_map/boot/initrd-2.6.xxx
    and it worked with ubuntu but gentoo doesn't make one. Is it in lilo mandatory to make/have an initrd something *what is it exactly anyway *?

    and why are these bootloaders such a hassle??

    hope you still can give a final solution for Scourge's problem and now my problem too

    Thanks and hello everyone

    The best way is to control the boot in Slackware or in Gentoo. Not in both

    Your partition which holds your Gentoo kernel should be mounted when running LILO. So mount your Gentoo partition, edit the slackware lilo.conf file and add the /path/to/the/gentoo/kernel/vmlinuz . Then rerun lilo . That should do it.
    I\'m so tired .....

    usually they are such hassle because WE make some mistakes .
    In my opinion lilo is quite easy and you can get (and post if you want more help ) a lot of diagnostic messages .
