Have you installed the linux already but you was unable to find lilo or linux bootloader when you restarted the computer after installation ? Then do the following...
1. Boot you pc from RH installation cds and then type "linux rescue" to enter rescue mode
2. Now it will ask you to mount the existing linux installation under /mnt/sysimage also it will give you instruction . Follow those instruction and when you get to command line give the following commands..
Code: [Select]
grub-install /dev/hdaAnd then boot..
