    Mandrake boot question.


    As you know when installing Linux Mandrake and Windows in the same partitioned hard disk, by default Mandrake is the primary boot OS, but, is there a way to put Windows as the default boot OS? How do you call the "welcome" screen of Mandrake, Lilo? or what's Lilo?

    Lilo is the Linux loader. Fortunately it can also load other OSs.

    To determine which is the default, edit /etc/lilo.conf in your Linux session. This file will contain something like:

    Change it to Windows.

    Then run /sbin/lilo to reinstall the loader which should not give you any error messages.

    Next time you boot it will load Windows after the timeout period.

    I believe that it can also be set from within the mandrake control center (there is a menu option for boot config in there)
