Re: newbie install problem
>From the lilo manual (probably in /usr/doc/lilo):
Disk error codes
- - - - - - - -
If the BIOS signals an error when LILO is trying to load a boot image, the
respective error code is displayed. The following BIOS error codes are
0x40 "Seek failure". This might be a media problem. Try booting again.
Generally, invalid geometry and attempts to use more than two disks without
a very modern BIOS may yield misleading error codes. Please check carefully
if /sbin/lilo doesn't emit any warnings. Then try using the LINEAR or LBA32
option (see section "Global options").
