Re: PQ Boot

    there is a solution of this problem. i read it somewhere.
1) mount your windows partition.

   mount -t    vfat    /dev/hda1    /dos
( this is an example. u should also change /etc/fstab so that it is mounted
at booting as well. i think it is necessary)

2 )  mv    /boot      /boot.sav

3)   mkdir   /dos/linuxboot

4)  cp  /boot.sav/*     /dos/linuxboot

5)  ln -s  /dos/linuxboot       /boot

6)   Make sure /etc/lilo.conf have correct entries.
Then enter the command


With regards
                                                 Vinod Nayak
