kernels and lilo

In Mandrake I could boot into whatever kernel I wanted...2,6 ...2.4  ect...is there a way that I can edit lilo and choose what kernel i want to boot from....I would like to have the choice   2.6 is the default Xp is there...i would like to add options for kernel24 and kernel 26mm..her is my current /etc/lilo.con....

# /etc/lilo.conf
#

boot=/dev/discs/disc0/disc
# This line often fixes L40 errors on bootup
# disk=/dev/discs/disc0/disc bios=0x80

default=arch
timeout=50
lba32
prompt

image=/boot/vmlinuz26
        label=Arch
        root=/dev/discs/disc0/part9
        read-only

other=/dev/discs/disc0/part1
        label=XP_Pro

# End of file

could i add

other=/dev/discs/disc0/part9
        label=vmlinus24

other=/dev/discs/disc0/part9
         label=vmlinx26mm

not sure if i can even do it...and if so how to add it so that i have the options to boot into different kernels

Re: kernels and lilo

Yes they are resident ...I need to know what needs to be put in /etc/lilo.conf  so that I can use them...and add them to lilo on boot menu..so i can choose what kernel i want to boot into...Am currently researching this but thought maybe someone here had an answer...

Re: kernels and lilo

Say i had kernel 2.6.10 and i had given the final image the name vimlinuz2610


add something like:


image=/boot/vmlinuz2610
label=Arch 2610
root=/dev/discs/disc0/part9
read-only

Re: kernels and lilo

All that does is give you the same kernel image with a different name..I had already done that...I am resigned to stop asking questions and just researching for the answers i need...thanks anyway
