I have been trying to get my installation of Red Hat 5.1 to boot
from my Iomega 1 Gb Jaz-disk, but so far no luck. If anyone has
experience in doing this please enlighten me.
I'm running on a Dell Dimension (300 Mhz) with at Pentium II and
the SCSI adapter is an Adaptec AH-2920C (BIOS v 1.32). Booting
from a floppy (which then goes on to load Linux from /dev/sda1
= Jaz disk) goes without problems.
It's when I try to make Linux boot straight from the Jaz disk
that I get an error ("Disk is not bootable") at system start.
I have set the Jaz to have SCSI ID=0 and put the Jaz disk at
the top of the list for bootable devices in the computers BIOS
(normally the 8 Gb IBM DHEA 38451 harddisk is on top).
When I do a "lilo -t -v" after a floppy boot, I get a warning
line saying: "/dev/sda1 not on first disk". My lilo.conf on
the Jaz disk looks like this:
I have read up on "Jaz-drive mini-HOWTO" but didn't find the answer
to my problems there.
Thanks in advance,
