RE: Problem with SILO on Ultra 10/IDE

Just curiosity questions: does SILO have the same problem that LILO does on
older Intel machines with large hard drives?  I know Sparc and Intel are
completely different but since the U10 is IDE wouldn't you get the same
issues if booting from a bigger than 512meg single root partition?  Or am I
completely off-base here?

Does the minimal install of Mandrake make a smaller root partition?

Like I said - just curious.

I have try this without success alltime only SI at the prompt.
The only "strange" thing I have see is the line :
in /etc/silo.conf. I have also try to modify this line to
but no change...

An minimal re-install of Mandrake is OK with SILO.

Thanks for your help.
