Re: [SLE] LILO boot order on LILO diskette
Hello again Peter

> mount -t minix /dev/fd0 /floppy fails with
Wrong syntax !!!!!!
it should be mount -t minix /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy

and be sure you first, in your /mnt directory do mkdir floppy
in other words, you make a directory called, floppy in the /mnt directory
for mounting floppys of any filesystem you need.

I know that my lilo - floppy made minix file system - so I'm pretty sure that that's what you need .
Unless you made the floppy with another kernel that had minix support , and your present kernel does not ?

Hope this helps
cheers
