    Hello
    Nice to see another contribution to the forums.
    Not to discourage you but there are tutorials both here and on the wiki about adding a bootsplash to lilo.
    Here is the link to one on the wiki itself, just in case some one would like to reference it too.



    EDIT: Added proper links from above for the lazy
    http://www.from-hell.org/bt3/lilo-22.3.2.51-i586-1.tgz
    http://www.from-hell.org/bt3/xray-blue.boot.gz

    As a side note I am not familiar with this website and as such I do not trust it. Others that follow this tutorial and wish to use the link provided are doing so at their own risk. Not saying that the site is bad, it's just unknown to me and may not be officially associated with it.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.

    I have followed everything in this tut to a T but I seem to be having issues saving my lilo.conf file to the MBR. I have a dual boot just like unix. But after I edit my file and run lilo -v it says that the /boot/vmlinuz dir does not exist. The way I did the dual boot install was from the video on offensive-security.com and from PH's tut. If anyone has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance for any replies.

    when you have already installet bt3 final check if /boot mountet to the point whit autofs thats not mountet to /boot then use

    Code:
    umont /mnt/"yourBootDevice(number)"
    mount /dev/hda(DeviceNumber) /boot
    ###check if boot propper mountet an vmlinuz is insert
    ls -la /boot
    lilo -v

    I guess I am not quite sure how to mount the /boot after I have rebooted. If I go into my boot folder all I have is the "xray-blue.boot". When I go into my storage devices I see my boot partition "hda2" but it will not allow me to mount it to anything. I am sorry if this is a very noob question but I cannot seem to figure it out. Thanks in advance for any replies.

    mv xray-blue.boot /boot
    lilo -v

    Default Cant get the splash to work

    Hello im liking the idea of the animated lilo boot splash but i cant get it to work it seems to not save and overwrite my previous lilo.conf file and therefore just brings the traditional red lilo up. I have same set up as soultaker666 and had same problem with not being able to find vmlinuz dir so followed the other step to fix that. But after a reboot still no animated lilo can someone please help iv probably missed something really simple but i would appreciate some help.
    Thanks
