    Hi,
    I have both Mandrake Linux 9.1 and Windows 98 Second Edition installed on my machine underb LILO.

    My question is how do I get to the DOS prompt and the Windows Safe mode during my machine boot-up as the LILO menu comes up very quickly after POST and thereafter I can't get to any of the above.

    MY machine is an Intel Celeron 1.7 GHz with 265 MB DDR RAM and 40 GB HDD.

    Thanks.
