Re: Lilo & hdb


You're right about the linux device structure regarding physical disks. I
however am using the same map-drive lines in my lilo.conf as you are,
except I am booting windows from the primary slave (hdb1). Why is it that
the same map-drive lines work for both you and I even though we are
booting from different physical drives?
