Hi, thanks for any help,
This is my setup:
405M drive for Linux (jumpered to be master)
850M drive for DOS (jumpered to be slave)
I have a 405Mb drive for Linux, and an 850Mb drive for DOS. I
had both OS's going fine on their respective drives, when I decided to
split my DOS drive into 2 partitions. I did this with FDISK.EXE. When I
tried to put DOS back on the big drive, the setup program would only allow
me to install DOS on the first drive(Linux's). I tried a lot of
different things, but finally gave in and put DOS on my small drive,
wiping out Linux. I then copied DOS over to my big drive and reinstalled
Linux on my little one. Now I have these problems:
I can boot Linux with a LILO boot disk, but if I have nothing in
a:, I get the "NO ROM; SYSTEM HALTED" message. When I installed LILO in
the Master Boot Record, LILO's install didn't ask me which drive to
install it on. I assume it was on the same as the root fs, the master drive.
I cannot access the big DOS drive at all. I can format it from a
DOS boot disk, or from the Disk Manager software that came with it, but
when I type c:, or d:, it says "Invalid drive specification". From
Linux's fdisk I can see the big drive, but Linux does not recognize it as
a DOS drive, so I can't mount it.
I have been through this routine several times now. If you have
any suggestions, please post or mail them as soon as possible.
