Re: lost my lilo boot! help! :((((


You have a couple of options to rectify the situation. If you want to
restore your Windows boot-up process you need a Windows boot disk with a

copy of on it. Boot from the bootdisk and type sys c: [enter].
This process will replace your original Windows boot loader so that you
can then boot into Windows.

After that you could look for a copy of loadlin on the net and follow
the directions to load linux from a DOS prompt., OR you could find your
distributions website or use the CD and make a linux bootdisk, mount
your root partition and reconfigure LILO from there.

Hope this helps.
