I'm having a small problem configuring lilo and I'm hoping someone can
I have a Pentium 133 running slink with kernel 2.0.35.
I have a SCSI bootdisk and I want to make my IDE drive my root drive.
I wish to boot the SCSI drive because it contains a windoze partition I
need to boot (sometimes). I've recently aquired a 6 gig IDE drive and
I've copied the linux over to it. I'd like to continue booting the SCSI
drive, but have something pointing to my IDE drive for Linux. At this
point I can boot either partition using loadlin. If I boot the SCSI drive
as root, I can use lilo to fix the MBR to boot linux off that drive.
This is not desirable because the partition is too small. However, if I
boot the IDE drive as root and attempt to use lilo I get the error message
here is my lilo.conf file:
when I run lilo, I get the following error:
Warning: /dev/sda3 is not on the first disk
scsi0: Adopting Geometry 128/32 from the Partition Table
Added Linux *
Then if I'm silly enough to attempt the boot the system it freezes after
Does anyone have suggestions as to what I can do to fix this problem? As I
said, right now I'm booting off the debian CD using loadlin and an older
kernel. I would like to automate the process and use my kernel.
Thanks for your help!
ps. I'm not sure of what other information you may need. So if You need
something else to solve this problem, let me know.
