I can disable the primary master in my BIOS, which will then boot up my secondary slave drive and up pops a Windows 98 boot-up screen. However, what I cannot do is convince LILO that it should boot up Windows 98 when I configure it thus:
it's win98 that doesn't want to boot, i think because it _has_ to be on the first harddrive...
i have a similar setuop and had problems too, what you have to do is re-map the win HD so windows thinks it's on the primary master.
modify /etc/lilo.conf as follows:
that should solve the problem
