How did you get Win95 onto the second drive?
The lilo installer should have complained about this.Quote:>other=/dev/hdb
This is the closest, but won't actually work.Quote:>other=/dev/hdb1
The messages suggests that the partition has not been properlyQuote:>None of them work, and after selecting the "dos" option from the LILO: prompt

initialized. You might need to boot from Win95 floppies, for the
same version of Win95, and run
This assumes that your second drive shows up as C:. If it shows up
as something other than C:, then you cannot boot Win95 from that
When all this is done, you will need to copy the partition boot record
to a file:
dd if=/dev/hdb1 of=/boot/win95bootsect count=1
Then you will have to use a binary editor, such as 'bpe' to patch
that boot sector. You need to change the byte at offset +24 from 80
(hex) to 81. If you are using FAT32, then the byte you need to
change is at offset +40. The purpose of this patching is to coax the
system into using the second disk (BIOS device 0x81) rather than the
first disk. Finally, in your lilo.conf, you will need
other = /boot/win95bootsect
label = dos
