Description bushsm 1999-06-28 18:13:40 UTC
I installed Red Hat linux 6.0 on top of Win 98. When
prompted where the boot loader should reside I chose the
Master boot loader. Then when I was prompted to choose
other operating systems to boot to, I selected Win 98. Now
when I choose to boot 98 at the LILO prompt the system
begins the process and then hangs. LILO will successfully
boot up Linux, but not WIN98.

Did you use any special partitioning software to install the windows
98 originally such as System Commander or Partition magic?

Closed dues to lack of feedback.
