This is a ``safe'' LILO setup: LILO is booted by the DOS-MBR. No other
boot sectors have to be touched. If the other OS (or one of them,
if there are several other operating systems being used) should be
booted without using LILO, the other partition has to be marked ``active''
with fdisk or activate.
- install LILO with its boot sector on the Linux partition.
- use fdisk or activate to make that partition active.
When you choose LILO as your boot loader during the installation of
Linux and you choose to install it into the MBR this is essentially
what the installer does.
