Re: Newbie question



Paul,

Sorry I made the changes to grub.conf but nothing happens. I think I am using 
lilo

I made some changes to lilo.conf but nothing happens:
prompt
timeout=50
default=linux
boot=/dev/hda
map=/boot/map
install=/boot/boot.b
message=/boot/message
lba32

image=/boot/fc2-vmlinuz
        label=Fedora
        initrd=/boot/fc2-initrd.img
        append="ramdisk_size=8192 text"

Thanks
LT
