Re: Easy lilo question (win95 on /dev/hda, deb. on /dev/hdb)
Try edit your /etc/lilo.conf. I have come up with this one
for your configuration described below, but I never tested.
Assuming you only have 1 partition on both hard drives:
In /usr/doc/lilo, there is a script called QuickStart or
something, you can use that to generate your lilo.conf.
After editing your lilo.conf, remember run lilo as root.
