Q: How do I re-install lilo after re-installing Windows 95?

I re-installed Windows 95. Now, when booting the system, it goes immediately into Windows 95, bypassing the lilo prompt.

A: Boot using the Linux emergency boot floppy supplied with the system. Mount your Linux root partition, often /dev/sda3 via (in this example)

mount /dev/sda3 /mnt

Then type this line:

ROOT=/mnt /mnt/sbin/lilo

You should see ouput "Added linux" on one line and "Added win" on the next. You can now cd to the / directory, umount /mnt, and then reboot.
