Lilo for USB bootable device
I'm new to lilo and would like to use it as a bootloader for a USB memory stick device (specifically a 256M Memorybird). The device is /dev/sda1. I've created a single partition on it using cfdisk, tagged it as bootable, and transferred some Linux necessary files. I've also copied the kernel and boot.b to the USB /boot directory. I've made a lilo.conf in /etc of the USB device that is like this:
Since this USB device will be used as boot device on another machine I used the lilo documentation page 37 to install lilo somewhere else by doing this (USB device is mounted as /mnt/usb on development system)
echo image=/mnt/usb/boot/usbLinux label=usbLinux | /sbin/lilo -C - -b /dev/sda1 -i /mnt/usb//boot/boot.b -c -m /mnt/usb/boot/map
The target computer (VIA mainboard) has the USB-ZIP boot option activated. When lilo starts it shows the following:
L 01 01 01 01 01 [....]
Can you share a light on what could happen in there ?
