Linux and DOS: was Linux the hard way



After loading most of the .deb files to my Linux partition on hda, dselect
ran out of space to actually install! I finally decided to just start over.
I have swapped the hard drives around so DOS is on hda and Linux is now
re-installed from floppy on hdc. The system would not automatically
configure to boot from hdc and I want to have a dual-boot system for DOS
and Linux. I know DOS 'needs' to be on the first hard drive, that's why I
swapped them. How do I configure LILO to dual-boot this set-up? My current
etc/lilo.conf reads:

boot=
root=/dev/hdc1
compact
install=/boot/boot.b
map=/boot/map
vga=normal
delay=20
image=/vmlinuz
label=Linux
read-only

The DOS drive, hda is now mounted at /dos. I can then use hyperterm to load
the .deb packages to the /dos drive to install.
Sorry for the simple question but, I've looked through my past E-Mails and
the how-to's and can't seem to find instructions for this. ( I'm probably
blind by this stage, but I am determined to get Linux up and running on
this machine if it kills me!)
Thanks again for all your assistance and understanding.

Cheers,

     John Gay
