Is it me or is it exactly what's explained in the Lilo mini-howto:
· The next one shows how to install Lilo on a hard drive connected as
/dev/hdc that will boot as /dev/hda. This is usually needed when
you install a new Linux drive from your own running system.
BTW, does anyone have an idea about how to use different fstab at bootup - by using a boot parameter for instance?
The idea is to be able to use a disk that is sometimes hda, sometimes hdb (my bios allows booting from the second drive).
For now, I have to go boot from floppy and manually edit fstab (or link it to a different file)
Of course I could set up two boot partitions, with each its own /etc/fstab... but is it possible to specify which fstab file to use at boot time?
Thanx for any idea
