I have installed Slackware 1.1.2 on my 3rd (SCSI) HD and currently use
bootlin 1.4 to boot it from hard disk. I use SCSI driver to access the
SCSI HD from both DOS and Linux because I have already 2 IDE HD as 1st
and 2nd HD (and I don't want to throw them away).
Under such installation, is it possible to use LILO boot from HD? I have
reserved some space on all three HDs to allow new partitions to be added.
I have read the LILO V1.4 document. To my understanding, if the HD, which
hosts the linux root directory, can NOT accessed via BIOS (in my case it's
on 3rd drive and therefore not accessable via BISO,only from driver), you
will NOT be able to use LILO to boot from HD. Of course I can put zImage
and LILO on floppy and boot Linux form floppy.
Am I correct?
Any suggestion/solution are welcome!
