Ok then. So if it brings you to the filo shell (boot:) you probibly want this:

boot: hdb:/boot/i386/loader/linux initrd=/boot/i386/loader/initrd  
splash=silent showopts console=ttyS0,115200n8

If it brings you to the grub/filo shell (grub>) then you would  
probibly want this:

grub>kernel hdb:/boot/i386/loader/linux splash=silent showopts  

Press <Enter>

grub>initrd hdb:/boot/i386/loader/initrd

Press <Enter>


Press <Enter>

Your system will now boot right into the Linux install. Hope that helps:-)

Thanks - Joe
