I made a full disk backup of an IBM PC running Red Hat Linux 2.4 from a SCSI HD to IDE HD. The backup was completed successfully but I was not able to reboot the IBM PC with IDE disk. Apparently, LILO did not run and I believe the MBR is missing from the new backup disk. How can I install LILO MBR on the new backup disk while it's mounted on anothe PC running FC4?
Thank you for your thoughts.

It's not so easy,when you move you system from SCSI HD to IDE HD ,you need to do these things
first :
reinstall the boot programe like lilo or grub ,I often use grub.
second :
modify your /boot/grub/grub.conf file to suit to the new disk configure
third:
maybe you need to modify your /etc/fstab ,to mount you partition correctly .
