Re: Lilo & hdb

I was successfully able to use the map-drive line in my lilo.conf to boot
from hdb1 by remapping BIOS accesses to the disk. I however used the exact
same hex values you did even though I'm booting windows from hdb1 not
hdc1. I was under the impression (assumption) that the hex values would
increment according to physical disk (ie hdc == 0x82). If the below
entries work for you, my assumption must be wrong. I have not been able to
find reference to the assosciation between hex values and physical disks.

Can anyone explain why my assumption is wrong?
