Subject: Re: SuSE 7.0 - boot problems
Hi Adrian et al....
I don't know if this will help you. But on one of my machines I upgraded,
like you with fresh install, the first time I tried LILO on it, it got
about half way thru the boot and hung.
After messing with it, I found that on my DOS C drive I had LOADLIN from
my old install. It was interfering with LILO. Once I deleted it off the
DOS drive LILO worked fine. Not saying this is your problem, but can't
hurt looking at it.
