Thanks for your reply.
I solved my problem:
when I ran xconfig I set by mistake "include IDE/ATAPI-2 DISK support"
to "m" instead to "y" ;-)
I rerecompiled the kernel and now it's ok.
About lilo :
I use lilo to boot on HDD1 on which win98 and potato 2.2r2 are installed.
And on HDD2 "potato -> woody" is installed.(I experiment ....)
I don't know if lilo can accommodate the three systems ?
I put the module udf in the kernel 2.4.17 and now I can read my CDRW
(burned with udf fs) with linux.
