LILO: Warning: /dev/sda is not on the first disk



-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----

Can anybody shed some light on the error message above?  I get it whenever
I run LILO now, and the system won't boot from the hard drive.  The only
change to this system was a new network card (there are now 2) and the new
kernel.  The kernel works fine, as I have installed LILO on a floppy and
can boot with no trouble.

Here are some details:
SCSI controller ID is 7
sda SCSI id 0
all other SCSI disks disabled as part of my debugging

hda is an IDE HD, no bootable partitions
hdb is an IDE CDROM

so...what is the "first disk"?  The system used to boot from /dev/sda just
fine, and the problem really seems to have something to do with the second
network card I added.

TIA for the help.
noah
