lilo is corrupted!
i run a dual boot system, winxp/slack10, and i was doin somethin in linux and had to reboot. but when it was time for lilo to pop up, i just got a whole bunch of 01's. I assume lilo got corrupted. the only thing i knew how to do was clear the MBR with a winxp disk and now it only boots winxp. how can i reinstall lilo without reinstalling linux or windows. I have a knoppix disk if that is helpful in any way. much thanks.
I don't know much about LiLo, I am a GRUB guy myself.
I did manage to find this site using Google though.
I hope you can get Slack up and running again. I remember what it feels like to have to use just Windows.
just reinstall slackware again but this time during the install use the mbr option during the install
i tried that site. it didnt work. i booted w/ the slack install disk. i ran pkgtools and reinstalled lilo there. it got lilo back on the disk. i could boot linux then. but i couldnt access my file system b/c of problems/inconsistencies in it. so i booted w/ the boot floppy and ran e2fsck to correct it and now it works perfectly again!
thanks for pointing me too that site budman, it got me on the right track.
I am glad you got it working again, and you are welcome. :D
