I was wondering, since this thing doesn't have an auto-configurating LILO, what would be the path of the kernel image I would have to input?

I really need help on this, by tonight.

Fuck Red Hat, I used that, and it sucked balls.

Now, do you know the kernel image destination, or not?

vi /etc/lilo.conf

I'm not sure where it is exactly on that distro, but that's why you grep.;)

Also, for future use:

vi from a command will let you edit lilo.conf. just add windows in there. i cant remeber exaclty something like

other=\dev\hda1 <--wherever windows is
label=windows

then just run lilo from the term. /sbin/lilo

oh yeah do a su before all that to log in as root of course. google will tell you what to do.

Say what?

When I tell it to add partitions to LILO, it says, "Enter path of kernel module."

What the fuck is that?

are you still at the beginning of the install?

*edit: i know what is going on. contrary to your belief CL does auto configure LILO for you. just hit 3 to verify that there is already an entry in lilo and you should see CollegeLinux.

I'm installing it again...

However, to my horror, now NTOSKernel.exe is missing from my 2K3 install...

Shit. Time to repair that...Better do that tomorrow...

Thank God this is on my second box...

www.linuxiso.org; go download Mandrake and let it hold your hand. Alternately, take my advice and download Suse' or Red Hat. Don't make some baseless comment about red hat sucking either, you obviously don't have the experience to even say that. Red Hat isn't the best distro out there, but I doubt you'd have any luck with more advanced distros, being a newb and all.

Yes I do jackass, but since you are a Linux guru, figure it out. Gee, I guess it's too much for you to read, to find your answers on your own Typical EU.
