the txt document does actually say to use a capital C as in , ' lilo -C /new/etc/lilo.conf' i was just too lazy to reference the example properly. nevertheless i did try with a capital C and it did not return '" Added Linux".
just to clarify:
from what i understand i have to first move the /boot
folder from the knoppix '/' system to a new folder called /boot.old
then make a link to /boot (from the '/' knoppix system) on my cbv hdd
then run lilo (somehow?) and presumably by doing so it will fix it up?
The lilo command is with a capital C - that will make all the world of
difference. eg lilo -C /new/etc/lilo.conf
After running that command you should see
* Added Linux
We'll update the doc to include that info.
Hope this helps,
