Stops at Lilo prompt
i have just installed debian onto a "fresh" computer (no system on computer
before installaition) using the "leaning debian linux" cd. after much
handwringing and filling in the blanks, the installation completed
successful. we rebooted and the lilo prompt came up -- and nothing happens!
insert boot floppy made during installation. boot. all is well.
check lilo.conf. looks good. run lilo. reboot. same thing.
reboot from floppy and re-install kernel image from cd. run lilo. reboot.
reboot from floppy. scratch head! now what???
the disk setup is
/dev/sda1 / 2000M
/dev/sda5 /tmp 100M
/dev/sda6 /usr 3500M
/dev/sda7 /var 1000M
/dev/sda8 /home 500M
/dev/sda9 /usr/src 1000M
/dev/sda10 swap 512M
/dev/sda11 /opt 1058M
the next move is to update the kernel, etc, using dselect.
any ideas why the drive is *not* booting on its own????
