Well, up-to-now I always boot from SCSI (scsi disks /dev/sda,
/dev/sdb, /dev/sdc). Now I bought the first time an IDE harddisk.
Installed on /dev/hda a new linux, lilo and so on, everything looks
but I can not anymore boot with lilo from the /dev/sd* disks.
# /etc/lilo.conf - LILO configuration file
boot = /dev/hda
vga = normal
delay = 150
image = /vmlinuz
root = /dev/hda1
label = linux
alias = 1
# Linux.old (or Linux.new or Linux.test)
image = /my.vmlinuz
root = /dev/sda2
label = linux.old
alias = 3
other = /dev/sdb1
table = /dev/sdb
label = win95
alias = 3
# Last Line of /etc/lilo.conf?
if i choose 3, LILO is just writting "Loading 3" and stops... :(
(the bootable-flag is set, and if I deleted the IDE disk
from the BIOS it also works in a proper way...).
(don't ask why I'm using MS$ stuff, ;), but I don't like to install
it once again; and the work-around with the enable/disable the
IDE disk in the BIOS (or changing the boot sequence therein) becomes on
the long term run a little bit tired....)
thanks for any hint!
