If you are using OS/2 Boot Manager, you should NOT select the 'Make the
Hard Disk Bootable' option. Instead you should install LILO on the root
partition of your hard disk (the /dev/sdb7 partition should be made
Then you need to configure Boot Manager to add Linux to the menu
(pointing to /dev/sdb7) and configure /etc/lilo.conf appropriately to
point to where LILO and the kernel, etc., are located (see the appropriate
HOWTO for LILO).
