I dont know whether it is appropriate to post this on RULE mailing list 
but am doing so in case someone else has the same problem in the 
future.  If these postings are inappropriate please say so!

I took the opportuninty to upgrade the hard disk on my RULE box from 2Gb 
to 10Gb and all seemed well disc recognised by autodetect in BIOS and 
the install went OK absolutely no strange happenings or errors.

When I do the final reboot the box hangs completely when usinging LILO I 
get the capital letter L of LILO and a flashing cursor and nothing else.

I have a suspicion that the HDD may be faulty in some way but how to 
diagnose what is going on?

Best Wishes
