If you haven't done so right-click pn the desktop to see the main menu. Choose enhance and you will get the icons for the main dsl applications. Use nedit to open the file called /etc/lilo.conf. Don't change anything except the line
change it to /dev/fd0 (tha't a zero)
Put a fresh formatted floppy in. Then right-click on the desktop and under Xshells choose rxvt. You should get a small black text screen( the command line interface). Inside of there type: sudo su This will give you root or superuser priviledges. Then type lilo (with the floppy inserted) This will install lilo on the floppy.
If nedit won't let you edit the file(permission denied) then you'll have to use the text editor called vi
From within an rxvt window type vi /etc/lilo.conf
This will open the file. Use the cursor keys to navigate. The x key erases and the insert or i keys will let you insert. The Esc key terminates insertion. When you've made the changes type: :wq in order to Write and Quit the program. Type
less /etc/lilo.conf in order to see the changes. The program less is a text pager- SpaceBar to go down, or Shift+PgDn, Shift+PgUp to go up, q to quit.
