I have Redhat installed from CDROM onto a 1.1 gig quantum
which I installed as the primary of the second IDE port
od a P133. The first IDE port has 2 drives (DOS) the boot
drive being a 420 meg and the slave an 840 meg.
I can boot linux from the redhat boot disk I created
with the incantation linux ramdisk=0 root=/dev/hdc1
(hdc is partitioned into 4 partions including a swap)
hda and hdb are my dos drives of course.
Everything seems to function fine in both DOS and linux
but I want to install LILO
lilo complains about 0x82 bios drive may not be accessible
when I run it and a boot indicates the to common
rebooting with the redhat bootdisk and the
linux boot incantation boots linux just fine.
What is wrong with this picture.
Am I not allowed to have linux on the master of a second
IDE port? What would the lilo.conf look like for this situation.
Any input would be appreciated.
