Description David Balažic 2000-02-21 11:16:52 UTC
gfx install form CD :
on the screen 'LILO configuration' I have the following data :
--
Partition : /dev/hda6              Type:Other   <--- ????
O Default boot image
Boot label : linux

Default | Device  | Partition type | Boot label
-----------------------------------------------
   X    |/dev/hda1| DOS/Windows    | win98
        |/dev/hda6| Linux Native   | linux
--
I find that type of 'Other' weird.

This is accurate, as that is indeed what gets written to the /etc/lilo.conf
file.  This merely means that the bootsector is something other than a linux
bootsector.

This issue will be resolved in the next cut of the beta installer.
