I do not understand precisely what is going on. You mean if you enable the
IDE drive in the BIOS setup, windows works, but Linux doesn't?

You shouldn't use the map-drive options but rather inform lilo about what
drive is seen where by the BIOS using DISK and BIOS directives:



Plug-and-Play is really nice, unfortunately it only works 50% of the time.
To be specific the "Plug" almost always works.            --unknown source
