    Killing lilo....

    I used to dual boot slackware/xp and since then i have removed all the linux partitions, swap setup, everything but my xp ntfs. I also resized my xp part back to its full 40gigs, but lilo still comes up when i boot the pc.....is there an entry in the bootini i have to kill?

    despite you calling me an idiot, i will still share...

    ms-dos prompt C:>fdisk /mbr

    google fdisk /mbr if you don't believe me. all it does is re-write your master boot record which is where lilo is installed
    i seem to have GCC 3.3.4
    But how do i start it?
    I dont have a menu for it or anything.
