I can't get Linux to boot up off of the hard drive using LILO. Whenever I
try, LILO goes LBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB.... with an endless string of B's. DOes
anyone have any idea how to fix this. To boot right now, I have to use a boot
floppy created with make zBoot. (no LILO booting) I tried installing LILO on
a floppy and the same thing happens, but the LILO included on the Slackware
boot disks works fine.
Pentium 90 24 meg of RAM
NCR 810 scsi adapter (int 9)
Disk 0: (scsi id 0)
1 meg Boot manager (sda1)
100 meg DOS (sda2) (fat)
60 meg OS/2 2.11 (sda5) (hpfs)
60 meg OS/2 Warp (sda6) (hpfs)
300 meg hpfs data (sda7)
Disk 1: (scsi id 1)
50 meg fat data (sdb1)
120 meg Linux Native (sdb5)
I tried installing LILO to the master boot record (I didn't care about boot
manager at the time), I tried the root sector and pointing the Bootmanager to
the linux partition, I tried a floppy. All yeild the same results.
Thanks in advance.
