Re: 80 MB ram in debian system

Hi Kirk,

Hit the shift key before Linux starts booting.  If the prompt still
doesn't show up, you will have to modify your /etc/lilo.conf file to add a
delay for the boot prompt or even force the boot prompt to wait for input
before booting begins.  IIRC, the line in lilo.conf would look something


for a delay of two seconds (not 20), meaning that the boot prompt would
wait two seconds before booting begins.  For example, I have a delay of 50
for 5 seconds.  Don't forget to run lilo if you modify your lilo.conf
