Can any one tell be how to set Windows as the default boot partition under lilo???
I would like to have the Windows option appearing first instead of the Linux
I have Slackware 9.1 installed in one partition (hda2)
and Windows Xp on another partition on the same harddrive (hda1)
I've no idea why you'd want Windows as the default boot, but here goes.
Open /etc/lilo.conf in an editor with root privilege. Look for something that looks like this:
image = /boot/vmlinuz
initrd = /boot/initrd.gz
root = /dev/hda7
label = Linux
Swap their positions and save. Then just run LILO and reboot.
other = /dev/hda1
label = Windows
table = /dev/hda
thanks for the info
though get me wrong i'll choose slack any day over Xp, but i'm gettin some problems gettin my modem to work in linux
