I've installed both xp and knoppix on a machine, however the only way to access knoppix is with a boot floppy. My question is this; How do I go about getting lilo to load up and give me the option of going to xp or knoppix? Unfortunately xp has decided to not let knoppix boot even through it'll let me have the option.

Any ideas?

Boot Linux w/ the floppy. Edit /etc/lilo.conf. It needs to have these lines (don't remove the others tho)

boot=/dev/hda

root=/dev/hdx? (wherever you installed Linux to)

lilo

reboot

done
