I saw some postings on this list about the L010101010 LILO problem.
I had the same problem but I solved it using another boot loader.
I use Snow 2.2. (Linux 1.1.58 + LILO-14)
I have been trying to track down why this happens, and I suspect
it's a obcsure BIOS problem in my Tulip DS 486-DX2-50 (TC-35 board)
I decided to junk LILO from my IDE 340 Mb drive and install Loadlin 1.5
from SunSite.unc.edu on C:\LOADLIN dir. My PAS 16 SCSI card has a ST1480N
425 MB drive loaded with SNOW 2.2 Linux and a CDROM on the same bus.
This program worked at the first attempt and is't a very good alternative
to LILO. I think it's even better to understand what's happening
and easier to configure _if_ you have a DOS system available on your box,
but doesn't everybody have DOS too on their box :-) Ah Well ...
If you use UMSDOS based Filesystem, it's probably the best option to choose
in my opinion.
Anyway, it was my attemt to work around that * L010101010 problem
when booting from my IDE drive.
