I have Slackware paralell to my main Debian instalation.
What I did was put the Slackware vmlinuz-image in a dir
I named /lilo.
I don't know if this is helpful but I found this the
the best way for me to keep things in order.
I booted into slackware from floppy, mounted the Debian
partition and then copied the bootimage to /lilo rebooted
into Debian and ran /sbin/lilo (I had already edited my
/etc/lilo.conf) and everything works very nicely.
Not beeing a Linux guru I hope somebody will sound of if there
is anything wrong with this setup.
