View Full Version : [xubuntu] Install Lilo instead of Grub with Alternate CD?

Can anyone tell me how to force the alternate CD to install Lilo? Even though this CD has a step for installing Lilo, at no point does it offer this option.

Their instructions will not work unless you have more than on OS on the system you are installing. That's the only what I know of trigging the dialog box that asks if you would like to install Grub.

If you have only Linux on your your computer the Alternate Install CD just goes and installs Grub without ever asking for a confirmation:(.
