Thanks for the response!
(I got your e-mail earlier, but just had chance to try it..)

I tried warm, and this did not work, so I tied bios, and it worked  :)

Yep, bios works :)

> and put the one that works into your lilo.conf

Please could you explain how to do this?
I tried it, and it said syntax error, and I could not see it mention reboot
in the lilo.conf man page :(

> (and never forget to re-run lilo afterwards...)

Yes, this is my usual trick...change lilo.conf and wonder why nothings
happening, until ages later when I realase I forgot to run lilo....I do it
every time! :)

Thanks Again!
