Overall, I'd say lilo was installed correctly. I don't know why there are two kernels. If one doesn't work then reboot and try the other; hopefully one of them works for you.
Thanks man, yes, Lilo is up again....'lilo -v -P ignore' did the trick...
OK, now I go back to the actual issues...If you still have the nerves, please confirm what I want to do next:
1) Still running VL-Light, I get my VL5.9-std-GOLD CD and copy it's content to a directory of </tmp/test>.
2) Get 'VL5.9-STD-Gold-262219.iso' from my USB flash memory stick and copy it to the directory of </tmp/test>.
3) In the Command Shell issue this 'overwhelming command line:
'mkisofs -o /tmp/test/vl59std_262219.iso -R -D -v -V VL_59A -A VL_59A -J -D -no-emul-boot -boot-info-table -boot-load-size 4 -b isolinux/isolinux.bin -c isolinux/isolinux.boot /tmp/test'.
BTW both kernels worked! I commented one with # at the beginning orf each line!
Strange enough, but although the lilo menu offers a selection of the three installed OSs -Win, Puppy and VL,
only VL is bootable. For Win I get the message "this is not a bootable disk" and for Puppy I get "Kernel Panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown block(3,5)"
I didn't have this situation before!
