    Fatal_Error: It looks like you have a good start on how to fix the problem. If I understand you correctly:

    *You did the HD install of Knoppix, but your boot loader didn't come out as expected.

    *Grub became your default boot loader, but you'd like to change it to LILO.

    My questions for you are similar to the thread you've posted:

    -Did you run the command liloconfig?

    -Do you have a file called: etc/lilo.conf or similar?

    -If you have that file; can you post it here on the board?

    Sheesh... This makes me not want to do a Knoppix HD install after all. Though the geek in me wants to try it just to see what happens.

    Steve, Congrats on the "century" mark.

    All my Knoppix installs went well as far a setting up LILO. This time its only Linux cause I deleted m$winders for ever and ever, amen. I accept full responsibility for the problem and will make every effort to never stray again.

    Here is that /etc/lilo.conf Sorry its so large.

    Fatal Error, I still think that you should think of jumping over to GRUB, because editing it is so much easier. Although, it is seldomly as pretty as LILO.
