    Reinstall lilo to hda, using hda lilo.conf and knoppix live

    Hello.

    I want to make a machine boot from a hard disk that already has a linux install on it. I basically need to reinstall lilo to the mbr, using the files from /mnt/hda1/boot (chain.b, boot.0300 & boot.b) and /mnt/hda2/etc/lilo.conf.

    I am using the knoppix live CD, and if anyone can tell me how, please do so asap!!! I would be very grateful.

    Here is my lilo.conf:

    delay=40
    append="panic=20"
    boot=/dev/hda1
    map=/boot/map
    install=/boot/boot.b
    #prompt
    #timeout=50
    message=/boot/message
    linear
    default=linux

    image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.2.16-22smp
    label=linux-mp
    read-only
    root=/dev/hda4
    append="hdc=ide-scsi"

    image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.2.16-22
    label=linux
    read-only
    root=/dev/hda4
    append="hdc=ide-scsi"

    I copied 2 partitions off the drive as I through that the machine would no longer be needed as a RH7 server, and put FC2 on it.

    I now find out that the machine is needed in bootable state (quickly!). I have copied the two images of the partition back on to the drive - hda1 which I have as /boot/ and hda2 which I have the rest of the old system on.

    If someone can help me with this I would most grateful!

    Thanks,
    Tom Jermy
