Data i get the strangest feeling that lilo hates me.

i need to get rid of lilo's splash screen.

i've heard that you can edit your /etc/lilo.conf and add this line:

<b>append="splash=0"</b>

anyway, i did that and i still have a splash screen. any idea why that didn't work, or what is another way to disable the splash screen?

okay,

Hmm... are you running Redhat by any chance? If so, you can remove that graphic selector by moving the /boot/message file to something like /boot/message.old. Then create a text version of what you want displayed on the screen, for example:

Press < enter > to boot the default Linux configuration, or
press < tab > to see other options.

After this, make sure to run /sbin/lilo to make sure it recognizes your changes.

Actually, try running /sbin/lilo after your append="splash=0"
change to make sure lilo is "see"ing it... If that doesn't work, try the above suggestions.

HTH
