this covers straight unencrypted installs. just a simple installation with everything installed under / mounted under /dev/sda1. No LVM or additional drives. if you're encrypted or have an otherwise fancy install this wiki expects that you understand the intricacies of your own system. for a more in depth look at how to chroot your installation media (which can be extremely useful for more that just lilo) see here

insert and boot your installation media

login as root when prompted but do not run setup

Mounting

mount /dev/sdX1 /mnt (where /dev/sdx1 is your / partition)

mount -o bind /dev /mnt/dev

mount -o bind /proc /mnt/proc

mount -o bind /sys /mnt/sys

Chrooting

Once everything is mounted, we can chroot to it:

chroot /mnt /bin/bash

now simply run "liloconfig" and follow the prompts
