OK, I'm now running GRUB from Slackware. It controls my MBR and boots all my operating systems on my main machine, with the exception of the soon-to-be plowed under borked Arch. Here's how I did it: GRUB (0.97) on Slackware - Build GRUB from SlackBuild in /Extras or download from SlackyEU (http://repository.sl...ub-legacy/0.97/ --> works on 14 current also) - Make sure to have a boot disk available (just in case) - Remove LILO if it was previously used as the bootloader on the system > #slackpkg remove lilo - Install GRUB on system > #installpkg grub-legacy
Here's another of those "I sure do miss Bruno" topics... Are there any LILO experts out here at Scot's these days? I've never been a LILO fan for multiple booting (beyond two OS's). It works like a champ on my laptop (dual boot) and even on my shop system (multiboot), but I've never been able to get it to work on my main system for some reason. I have a complicated fdisk layout on this system. I have three drives (non-RAID) running with numerous partitions on each. It's always been problematic to get LILO to properly recognize the drives/partitions and boot my multiple operating system
