Re: LILO only says LI 01 01 01 01...
First of all: Thanks a lot for your fast help!

THAT was it! I can't believe that I actually have to physically
unplug all IDE drives to get lilo to work. If I only take them
out of the CMOS settings Linux still sees them and can access
them. How is this possible? How does it know what type of HDs
I got in there? Okay, I guess with newer HD types there are
methods to query the disks.
Do you guys know *why* Lilo doesn't like to see the IDE drives?
I can't imagine that this is a bug in Lilo. But it's kind of
awkward to open the case and unplug the drives if I want to
run lilo. Maybe there is another way to do it? I tried to
remove all /dev/hd*, but that didn't work either.
Anyway, thanks again for the fast help!
