Actually, it does.
For example, on one system I have a single IDE drive (it was cheap :))
and the rest is SCSI. LILO wanted to believe that my BIOS would only
boot from IDE if it was there. (Some BIOSes do that, but not mine.)
So I added the following to lilo.conf:
disk = /dev/sda
bios = 0x80
In your case, something like:
disk = /dev/hdb
bios = 0x81
should work fine.
This is covered in the LILO docs.
