Ok, I am trying to install GRUB to a hard drive from a computer with windows. I don't have any burnables or else I would just burn a Live CD that has GRUB ready to install. I have a hard drive plugged into my laptop via a USB Hard Drive Enclosure. I have the flavour of Linux on it I want to run, but I can't get it to boot... so I am trying to make it bootable.
I dropped DSL on it with a FAT32 partition, the drive is small enough that I can make it a FAT16 partition (I think), but since I don't have a working installation of Linux on any of my 'puters, I can't format as a Linux partition and dump on the distro.
DSL = Damn Small Linux
Ok, well I am a lot closer with it... managed to get DSL installed on the drive properly, but since it was installed with the name of it being /dev/sda I am having problems changing it to /dev/hda in the lilo.conf since I am editing it through DSL-VM version though VMware... and I can't run lilo when I am done editing like it says I should... any thoughts?
