This time I removed an then installed slackware linux, created a boot floppy and then used it to make adjustments to mcedit /etc/lilo.conf
The floppy said it was going to boot from hda2, where my linux is.
Both items in /etc/lilo.conf that said hda2 I changed to hda and added a line after the global setup bit saying default=Linux and saved those settings. I typed lilo and it said,
added windows
added Linux *
Then I typed /sbin/lilo -v to save them to my MBR, but lilo still didn't appear in start up. Am I doing something wrong?
To check it how do I start linux from floppy?
