I had BT1 installed on hda4. hda2& hda3 are ntfs partitions used for windowsXP. hda1 is a pre-installed windows partition - rescue button on my laptop...
i tried to follow guides to get bt installed on hdd but no success...
it still loads the old lilo ......
step by step
1 i boot bt2 cd
2 run the installer
3 select hda4 and /dev/hda for mbr
4 after finished, i reboot
5 i get the old lilo and i can go into winblows but can't into bt. it says EBDA too big when trying to get into old "slax" (bt1)
leave the source field ( cdrom ) empty in the gui installer
worked for me
