    Default Problem with installing BT3 to hdd [RESOLVED]

    I recently got my acer aspire one umpc, (120gb hdd, winxp) and I've been trying to install BT3 to a seperate partition, using the steps provided here:
    htt p : // forums. remote-exploit .org /showpost .php? p=88197&postcount=24
    And everything went as described... Until I tried to boot with lilo, and instead of the boot menu, I got
    L. 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 08
    As you could probably guess, the Acer Aspire One doesn't have a rom drive or floppy drive, and I can't boot into windows.
    The partition is 4gb in size, and formatted in ReiserFS.

    My lilo.conf file is as follows:
    Code:
    # LILO configuration file
    # generated by 'liloconfig'
    #
    # Start LILO global section
    lba32 # Allow booting past 1024th cylinder with a recent BIOS
    boot = /dev/sda
    message = /boot/boot_message.txt
    prompt
    timeout = 1200
    # Override dangerous defaults that rewrite the partition table:
    change-rules
    reset
    # VESA framebuffer console @ 1024x768x256
    vga = 773
    # Normal VGA console
    # vga = normal
    # VESA framebuffer console @ 1024x768x64k
    # vga=791
    # VESA framebuffer console @ 1024x768x32k
    # vga=790
    # VESA framebuffer console @ 1024x768x256
    # vga=773
    # VESA framebuffer console @ 800x600x64k
    # vga=788
    # VESA framebuffer console @ 800x600x32k
    # vga=787
    # VESA framebuffer console @ 800x600x256
    # vga=771
    # VESA framebuffer console @ 640x480x64k
    # vga=785
    # VESA framebuffer console @ 640x480x32k
    # vga=784
    # VESA framebuffer console @ 640x480x256
    # vga=769
    # End LILO global section
    # Windows bootable partition config begins
    other = /dev/sda2
    label = Windows
    table = /dev/sda
    # Windows bootable partition config ends
    # Linux bootable partition config begins
    image = /boot/vmlinuz
    root = /dev/sda5
    label = BackTrack3
    read-only
    # Linux bootable partition config ends
    Is there anything you guys can recommend I do?

    Thanks,
    Bradszy

    EDIT:
    When I have my usb plugged in, it loads up the lilo menu like a charm.
    But having my usb in defeats the purpose...

    EDIT 2:
    I finally got it working, there was something wrong with the lilo.conf file on my usb, which was determining the lilo settings for my hdd.
    Thanks anyway
