I just installed Slackware LINUX 3.0.1(from CHIP-SPECIAL EXTRA 1/96)
Kernel 1.3.18 from CD-ROM
and can boot LILO only from floppy drive A
but not from the C master boot record
and not from the superblock of the root LINUX partition.
Pentium 100 on GA-586ATE board with IDE1+2, 24 MB RAM
HD1: SEAGATE ST5660A 545 MB 1057x16x63 NORMAL
C: Prim FAT 503 MB
Log free 16 MB
HD2: QUANTUM SCIROCCO 1707MB 827x64x63 LBA
D: Prim FAT 513 MB
HD3: QUANTUM SCIROCCO 1707MB 827x64x63 LBA
E: Log FAT 401 MB
F: Log FAT 401 MB
G: Log FAT 401 MB
Log 83 309 MB LINUX root
L/P free 2 MB
IDE 2/2=CD-ROM Mitsumi
Currently i'm testing the System Commander boot manager
and can boot DOS6.22 / OS2warp / Windows / Windows NT
all from the master boot record.
Matrox Millenium PCI-card is quoted as " unknown PCI device"
during booting but functions in VGA mode.
Where could I get a driver?
I understand, that booting from a LINUX partition beyond the second HD
would require some source modification of the kernel.
Is this correct?
I do not understand why the master boot record remains untouched.
Who knows why?
Thanks for any help.
