for reference... see /usr/doc/lilo*
easiest way to (kludge) fix that
- hope you made a boot floppy during the install...
- if not...you should always make a boot floppy during install...
not sure if debian has a "rescue disk"...
assuming you can boot linux by some other method...
( boot floppies )
1. go into single user mode
2. dd if=/boot/vmlinuz-whatever-kernel of=/dev/fd0
3. reboot from floppy and you should be merrily up and running
-- assuming that you made /dev/hda1 your / partition...
and you want to boot /dev/hda1 instead of /dev/sda1
4. now edit lilo.conf to be something like:
root# vi /etc/lilo.conf
- if that does not boot what you want...
boot=/dev/sda -- depends what you did during install
boot=/dev/sda1 -- one of those should work...
root=/dev/sda1 ===>> that is your debian / partition ??
if you do NOT have your 18GB /dev/hda partitions...you should...
have fun linuxing/liloing
