    I have even posted in the second one.
    no avail


    every thing works fine until I hit the
    Code:
    lilo -v
    to execute the changes made in lilo
    in return all I get is this error.
    Code:
    Reading boot sector from /dev/sda3
    Fatal: creat /boot/boot.0800: Read-only file system
    Can you help me please?

    So noone answered your questions yet , i'll give it a try without having a mac.

    Fatal: creat /boot/boot.0800: Read-only file system
    The Error tells it can't write to your hdd, so did you check the "w" flag? Try:
    Code:
    mount -o rw /dev/sda
    to mount your hdd with writing permission.

    Another way would be to try out grub instead of lilo.
    Be sensitive in choosing where you ask your question. You are likely to be ignored, or written off as a loser, if you:

    * post your question to a forum where it's off topic
    * post a very elementary question to a forum where advanced technical questions are expected, or vice-versa
    * cross-post to too many different newsgroups
    * post a personal e-mail to somebody who is neither an acquaintance of yours nor personally responsible for solving your problem

    My friend figured out that I was not saving my lilo configuration in nano. Therefore it yielded that error.
    Everything works now.


    thanks
