"Done" Screen

When you press ok, the system will reboot. You will need to go into Mac OS at least one more time to change the rootdev setting (mentioned in the previous screen).

When the system reboots, the MkLinux "Splash Screen" will appear again. Select "Mac OS". Once Mac OS has booted, invoke the MkLinux Control Panel. Press the "Custom..." button in the control panel.  The SimpleText editor will be launched and you will be editing the "lilo.conf" file. Change the line that contains "rootdev=/dev/XXXX" to the value that the installer gave you. Save the file and quit.

This is a good time to choose your "Startup Selection".  Click the button next to either Mac OS or MkLinux. (This sets the default choice at the MkLinux Splash Screen. At the splash screen, you can always override the default choice.)

Close the MkLinux Control Panel and restart your Macintosh. Choose MkLinux. (If MkLinux is the default OS, you may simply choose to wait 10 seconds.) MkLinux should now boot, placing you at the "login prompt".
