    standard row / col


    label = Linux
    root = /dev/hdd1

    -- simple lilo configuration, could do it myself but it was more stable to use that and mobify it myself afterwards
    I take it that this is not your lilo.conf and output of fdisk -l.
    Most likely the error is somewhere in the lilo.conf file, so, if we could see the contents, we should be able to help you.

    Use CODE tags when posting output of commands. Thank you.

    Ok, I got it solved.

    The problem was in my /etc/lilo.conf

    When I installed Slackware, I used simple method to configure lilo.
    It makes it automatically, I was lazy.

    Lilo thought that my first disk (what usually is) the disk where I wanted to boot from.

    But in my case, it was the hdd1.

    so boot = /dev/hda1 was what was wrong.
    Fixed it to right disk and now it's working.

    I thought I had allready checked that..

    Anyway, thanks to everyone attempts to help me and so on.

    To other newbie Linux users I want to say: CHECK TWICE YOUR CONFIG FILES
    so you don't need to make yourself a clown. (Like I did)
