Using Vi To Edit lilo.conf

It have been asked to not assume that everyone knows how to edit files. Here are a very simple set of instructions which should be enough to allow you to modify /etc/lilo.conf.

  1. Open the file by running vi /etc/lilo.conf
  2. Use your arrow keys to move the cursor to the line that you want to insert "vga=791".
  3. Press i. Then type what you want to insert (i.e. vga=791<enter>).
  4. If it looks good, then to save, press the ESC key and type :wq. If you messed things up, you can abort by pressing ESC and typing :q!.
