    I followed all the steps here:

    Code:
    hxxp://forums.remote-exploit.org/showthread.php?t=14918
    And when I restarted to boot into backtrack through my SSD I got a problem...

    I have it set to boot into EEEUBUNTU first, so it did. The next time I started up, i went into the boot menu and chose the second SSD... turns out it booted into Ubuntu as well!?

    Now when I started up Ubuntu, I had an option to mount the 4.0GB SSD, the one with the Backtrack installed, so I did, and all the files are there..

    I followed the tutorial step by step. What could I have done wrong? And how can I fix it?

    Thanks

    No one knows?

    lilo or other boot loader file will more than likely help us to help you.

    lilo.conf looks like this:

    Code:
    lba32
    boot = /dev/hdc
    prompt
    timeout = 60
    change-rules
    reset
    vga = 773
    image = /boot/vmlinuz
    root = /dev/hdc1
    label = Back|track3
    I noticed I also have a file called lilo.conf1 with what looks like the old lilo.conf file.. oh and lilo.conf.5

    not sure if that means anything.

    If I am understanding you correctly you have a dual boot machine.
    But I only see hdc1 as one single entry. Where are the entries for the other
    partitions?

    Ok, that makes sense, I need to add the ubuntu ssd into the file.. but

    the thing is, it only boots into the ubuntu disk..

    So would I have to edit the boot file on the ubuntu disk...?

    I'm confused because it seems like the backtrack lilo file isn't even being run.. since only Ubuntu is booting even when i select the other disk..

    Are you using one of the many tutorials here on the forums to do this ?
    You also might want to look into #man lilo

    i posted the full lilo file but the sda is what i get when i boot. its the ubuntu grub boot file thats being loaded not the lilo.. so im thinking i should add backtrack to the ubuntu boot file instead...

    heres my fdisk -l
    Code:
    Disk /dev/sda: 4034 MB, 4034838528 bytes
    16 heads, 63 sectors/track, 7818 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 1008 * 512 = 516096 bytes
    Disk identifier: 0x437a52ed
    
       Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
    /dev/sda1   *           1        7818     3940240+  83  Linux

    now im trying to add a backtrack boot option and this is what ive come up with so far based with past posts on this forum but no matter what i choose i get an error:15 file not found when i boot into it... what should my root be? and is everything else correct?

    Code:
    title        Backtrack 3
    root            (hd1,1)
    kernel        /boot/vmlinuz ro /dev/hdc1 vga = 773
    initrd        /boot/splash.initrd
    quiet
    or if thats not an option, i've got backtrack booting now after i set it as the first ssd to boot up.. but now then i would like to add ubuntu to lilo..

    lilo.conf :
    Code:
    #Backtrack
    lba32
    boot = /dev/hdc
    prompt
    timeout = 60
    change-rules
    reset
    vga = 773
    image = /boot/vmlinuz
    root = /dev/hdc1
    label = Backtrack
    
    #ubuntu
    other = /dev/hdd2
    label = ubuntu
    table = /dev/hdd
    then i ran lilo -v
    and it added ubuntu to the boot list without a problem

    but when i restart and start ubuntu it says its loading it but just hangs and doesnt not go anywhere else.
