I installed RH7 on my pc at home, and it disliked just about everything
in the box, but after getting a lot of it working, ive been left booting
to linux from a floppy.
Whenever i try to install LILO to the mbr (using linuxconf, yes, im a
wimp), this is the error i get:
* warning: device 0x0303 exceeds 1024 cylinder limit
* fatal: sector 66449906 too large for linear mode (try 'lba32' instead)
(win2000 and winxp are also installed on the machine, so i need to get
them on the boot list too)
Oh, and because im using the fbd server (? i think. was a few months ago
i tackled getting x to work), ive got to pass 'linux vga=792' to lilo
when it prompts me.
So, anyone any ideas/suggestions as to what i should do?
