Lost lilo conf - no broblem ;)
I'm sure any respecting linux user had lost at lest one time the root disk or forgot to type lilo after kernel rebuilt/compile /just kidding/. I've done that a couple of times so decidet to wright this post. Insted of installing Linux again just to retrive the lilo conf you can do what i did:
Boot the linux CD1, start the setup, go to ADD SWAP. After setup finishes formating swap it continues with the install and after adding linux, cancel the setup - Do not format ur kinux partition!, also Do not change ur fstab!. Now go to configure/reconfigure and it will guide u to the rest of the precess whithout the need of installing the hole linux system. From there u can add lilo to MBR or disk /whatever u want/.
