On the boot disk? If I boot off a floppy and do:
mount /dev/hda4 /mnt/hd # hda4 is /
mount /dev/hda2 /mnt/hd/boot # hda2 is /boot
chroot /mnt/hd /sbin/lilo [options, whatever]
I'll be running the lilo that's in /sbin on /dev/hda4 won't I?
That one reports "LILO vrsion 21.7-5". Came with the slak-8 distro
and worked fine when the HD in question was in the P133.
I'm going to find the lilo source tonight and see if I can puzzle out
what "Error 0x48" means.
