This is driving me mad mad mad...
Installation of 7.2 on a laptop 30G drive

After installation via dvd (all seemed to be ok).
on reboot....
used full disk

/ = 3G
/usr = 10G
swap = 1G
/opt = 8 G
/var = 4G
/boot = 500M
lilo = MRB

Although /boot seems excessive I tried it anyway

Problems on reboot

SuSE still wants the floppy in drive A.

Its looking for a modules floppy
It still asks for disk 1 to be inserted in the CD drive.

Now all I get is the install screen again and again...

How do I boot via my MRB without the need
of a floppy ?


(I have used versions 5, 6.x's and 7.x's too with no problems).
