I assume of course, that you have setup the bios offset for the drives
correctly. You almost definetly need a


in your lilo.conf. [I happen to be booting right now from a machine
with mixed ide/scsi with the scsi loading before the ide drive...]

Finally, linux (the kernel) doesn't really have anything to do with
the bootloader, other than the fact that the bootloader loads it, and
the boot mapper interacts with the disks through it.
