harddrive questions

Good morning all,

        got a couple of quick harddrive questions:  i have a scsi drive and am
trying to install lilo but it doesn't seem to want to work.  each time i
put it in either the MBR or the root drive it seems to corrupt something
and then i can't boot any OS rather i have to boot with a boot disk and
clean off the mbr.  any suggestions??  i also have a box with two ide
drives that don't like each other.  it was suggested to me to use two
controller cards but i can't seem to get this to work either.  Is this
just a jumper problem?  if so where?  on the drives or the controllers??



1. Large harddrive question

In the "Large disk how-to" I read that Linux does not use the bios and
therefore Linux doesn't suffer the same limitations as dos when it
comes to big hard drives. I have a 486 motherboard that under DOS
suffers from the infamous 528 MB limitation. Am I correct in my
understanding that under Linux I could run large harddrives from this
motherboard? To be more precise I want to use a 10 GB harddrive for
overnight backup purposes. Is that posible? The only operating system
on this disk would be Linux (Slackware 3.6)
