I am needing to boot my linux partition, however do not have a boot disk. Is this possible from the cdrom installation disk? I don't want to reinstall, I just want to boot the partition so I can reinstall LILO.

If this is not possible from cdrom, what is a good way to accomplish what I am wanting to do?

Hi,

I think that when you put in the boot disk there is a possibilty to customise Lilo, or Grub, what distro are you using?

Hi,

just tried it out...

I did it with Fedora, but Red Hat can do it to, and I think Mandrake as well , including whitebox...and probably other distros to [sorry I only got these 4]


just boot with the first cd of you're distro

select the Rescue mode

and then type : linux rescue

and answer the questions...

Sincerely
