Working Again

I found an easier way to get LiLO working without having to re-install Vector Linux. I found that you can use the install cd as a boot disk so at the start-up prompt I put in linux root=/dev/hda2 (where linux is installed on my hard drive) and hit enter. Once I got to shell I logged on as root and ran /sbin/liloconfig to setup lilo. Now I can tackle my next major problem, audio.

I tried installing the soundblaster drives but I get errors. I'm going to dowload ALSA (hopefully) tomorrow when I get internet access at my house (I'm at the public library).
