Accidental power-out / LILO / mount @ boot?
Howdy all -
I'm a relatively new user... When running X (KDE) as root (I was
configuring KDM), our power went out for a second, causing the
computer to reboot... as it was rebooting, the power went out again...
anyway, now when I type "finger", I get a little table similar to
user: Tty: Idle: Login:
root *:0 dec
root *p0 18:35 dec
root *p1 1:01 dec
root *p2 dec
what does this mean, and how do I fix it? As root, I tried running
"fsck" (simply by typing "fsck"), because I got the impression that
this was similar to running Norton Utilities to fix the filesystem -
but nothing seemed to happen....
ALSO - LILO, anyone?
I can't for the life of me figure out how to get lilo going, even
though I think I've read almost everything there is (does this mean
I'm too stupid for linux?)... anyway, my disk setup is as below:
/dev/hda1 boot primary dos fat 16 (big) 2 GB (C: drive
in windows) /dev/hda2 primary dos fat 16
1 GB (E: drive in windows) /dev/hda3
primary linux ext2 1 GB linux partition
I tried running lilo as root (simply by typing "lilo") and it didn't
work.... I then typed "lilo -u /dev/hda3" to uninstall it (?)....what
am I doing wrong?
is there an easy way to get all of the above partitions to "mount" at
bootup, so that I can access my windows files from linux without
having to "su root" and mount and unmount one at a time?
THANK YOU ALL IN ADVANCE!!!!
