How to Install LILO to the Root Partition After Installing Linux

  1. Sign on as root.

  2. Change the "boot=" section of the "/etc/lilo.conf" file to be the same as the "root=" section of the same file.

  3. If the boot partition is above 8 GB, be sure to add "lba32" to "/etc/lilo.conf".  If adding "lba32" and "linear" exists, remove "linear".

  4. Type lilo and press Enter.  It should indicate that it was added.
