For reasons related to work, I use one box that used to (and still needs to ) dual boot with win98se. A few days ago the 98 side went totally south, and cannot even be fiddled with in safe mode. Thus I need to reload 98 which will over write the LILO boot loader. No problem except that I can't find any way to actually reload LILO.

What I do is to boot from CD (or DVD) and select boot installed system.
THen you choose your root partiion, and Linux starts...
Once you got Linux up and running, you can reinstall LILO with the
standard commands...

Hope this helps

I can do just that with versions later than 7.x, but 7.x doesn't appear to offer that option. Perhaps I should just insert an 8.x Cd and see if that works.
