I installed debian stable as my third OS on my second drive, i need to make lilo point to debian's kernel 2.6.32. Can somebody help me? I did not install a boot manager for debian.
Is there a way i can edit and put something like:
/boot/vmlinuz -> vmlinuz-2.6.32 ?

With Debian, I have found that it helps to make symlinks to the kernel and initrd in the boot dir.
Something like:
Code:
cd (debian root)/boot
ln -s vmlinuz-2.6.32 vmlinuz
ln -s initrd.img-2.6.32 initrd

Then run vliloconf and see if it picks it up.

Here is how i do it:

Code:
image = /boot/tamu/vmlinuz
     root = /dev/sda5
     label = VL7STD64
  #   append = "resume=swap:/dev/sda7 splash=silent"
   #  initrd = /boot/initrd
     read-only

image = /boot/vmlinuz
     root = /dev/sda1
     label = 1337
    append = "video=640x480"
   #  initrd = /boot/initrd
     read-only
image = /boot/vmlinuz-huge-2.6.37.6
     root = /dev/sda1
     label = hugeslack
    append = "video=640x480"
   #  initrd = /boot/initrd
     read-only

Lilo is installed on /dev/sda1. You need to have the kernel and System.map in the sub directory of /boot on the partition where lilo is installed as well as in /boot on the partition you are booting to. If you have a seperate boot partition, nevermind Smiley
