When Woody boots up it is like a command line and you get no menu to
pick different kernels from.
This was fine until I compiled a new kernel, lilo it, but I have no
way to pick it out to boot from.
How do you convince lilo to use a menu while booting???
Try pressing shift (there is probably a pause while nothing is hapening
whitch is giving you the option to press shift and see lilo menu). Cant
remember the options but it is possible to not show the menu untill
shift is pressed. I had this problem and worked out what was wrong
looking at the lilo.conf. If you are really stuck you can use knoppix
as a rescue disk. I even managed to chroot, edit lilo and run the lilo
prog from it.
