Changing Between Grub And Lilo

Recommended Posts

do I have to fix the MBR before installing LILO. or will LILO overwrite GRUB and remove it for me? or could I keep Grub and just set up the Menu.lst for it in DSL?

All I can find is cases of changing from Lilo to Grub, not the other way around.

are you adding DSL as a second distro? If so choose not to install a boot loader, then just add the entry to you menu.lst of you currently installed distro.

edit added later//

after reading your other post I realize this will be you only distro. So just let it install lilo to the mbr, this will effectively remove grub

thanks Shanenin,

I'll try what you and naruku posted in the other thread first. if we can't figure out what is wrong then I will do the switch.
