You can read master boot record and search on it.
dd if=/dev/hda of=~/mbr.bak bs=512 count=1
then: cat ~/mbr.bak
the result is not very nice, but there can be read sometinh like "GRUB
GeomHard DiskRead Error" for grub, I have't lilo, but think there must
be something else in result of cat :)
You might be better off using 'strings ~/mbr.bak', rather than a pure
'cat'. My system (using grub) shows:
[root@songspire ~]# strings mbr.bak
Of course, we are assuming that you installed lilo/grub in the MBR, not
