Re: lilo and booting from /dev/hde question
hi ya alice
if you tried to boot from fd into /dev/hde1 and it didnt work...
my guess is your mb doesnt support booting off drives hde-hdf-hdg-hdh...
- move /dev/hde to hdd or something lower...
- reverse hda and hde on the drives ( controller cables )
- change the current hde:/etc/fstab to /dev/hda instead of /dev/hde..
and than reboot .. might need the boot fd to boot into the new hda
( old hde )
add the original hda as new hdb or hdc or hdd or...
- leave /dev/hda alone till you can get hde working... so you can recover
from any ooppps
- getting a new mb is an overkill
