RE: Question on install


If I'm understanding you right, you're saying that when you try to boot from
the rescue disk it just boots your previous lilo.  If this is true check your
BIOS settings for boot order and make  sure that it will boot from the floppy
drive before it looks at the hard drive.  If this is the case when you try to
boot with the rescue disk your system should just lock if it's a bad floppy
etc...  There's no way it should be booting your lilo off of your hard drive
unless it's not even looking at the floppy.
