hi i already have a dual booting system with windows xp and have been using it from september. Last night i got a deadly virus to my xp system and i was so unhappy (damn security flaws in windows) that i deleted my ntfs partition through qtparted.

I dont plan to install windows anymore so making knoppix single boot
how do i get rid of windows option in my lilo and get rid of lilo and boot directly into linux for that matter

please help

You still need lilo eventhough you're not using windows.
What you need to do is remove xp menu and change lilo timeout in /etc/lilo.cfg.

remove :


**make sure default is set to Linux if in previous it was set to XP.

Reduce the value of Timeout section if you want to boot to default faster.
**Dont forget to run : lilo -v after you edit your lilo.cfg.

:D :D
