    The Slackware CD can be used as a rescue disk, just type "linux root=/dev/your-root-partition" at the boot prompt (where you would type bare.i if you were installing).

    To reinstall lilo to the MBR just login as root, open your lilo.conf in mcedit with "mcedit /etc/lilo.conf", check to see that it's all correct, save with <F2> and then run lilo, you can use the -t option to test first without writing to the MBR, "lilo -t".
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
