How do I make my scsi harddrive available?

HI, I was able to install the free sco openserver to my
first IDE hard drive by using the scsi cdrom (via slha link),
during the installalation, my scsi harddrives couldn't be found.
I am wondering if any one can tell me how to make use the scsi hard
drive after the installation?  Also, I have a dos partion on the
first IDE hard drive, is it possible to see it from SCO?



1. making new bootable harddrive


I am trying to make a compact version of linux on 10 MegB IDE
flashdrive. Here is what I've done:

1. Setup: I have my linux development drive as master on primary IDE
(/dev/hda) and target drive as master on secondary IDE (/dev/hdc).

2. Partition target drive: fdisk /dev/hdc <RETURN> (just one partition)

3. Format target drive: mkfs.ext2 /dev/hdc1 <RETURN>

4. mount target drive: mount /dev/hdc1 /mnt

5. copy /boot/boot.b and /etc/lilo.conf to /mnt and modify lilo.conf

6. install lilo: /sbin/lilo -C /mnt/lilo.conf

I then move the target drive to primary IDE and try to boot from
there. I expect at least to get to the LILO boot prompt (the same
thing works for floppy), but I just get an L and then a bunch of
error (01). Can anyone tell me what I am missing ???

I am also plan to put the kernel (vmlinuz) and whatever necessary
to get linux with TCPIP working on the drive. What are the files
I need to copy to the flashdrive ? Can I fit a minimum configuration
of linux into a 10 Meg drive ? Any help is appreciated.

Thank you in advance,
