### knoppix and mbr fun

Here is how much fun you can have with knoppix and mbr:
1. To screw your mbr, run
knx-hdinstall
and elect to install lilo into your mbr. Now this might just be me, but lilo won't install, complaining something about my video card, and device 0xf00000 which I did not commit to memory.

2. To fix your mbr, run
cfdisk
as root by typing
su
find your bootable partition, and simply do
install-mbr -e <partitions>
/dev/<your master hard drive>

Only works for IDE as far as I know. For me, it was partition 1 and 3, and thus the invocation was:
install-mbr -e 13 /dev/hda
man install-mbr
