The one answer that I am sure of is that my CDRW is on
the list of supported drives.

I did not make a boot floppy at the end of the kernel
configuration where it was an option. The default was
"no" and with all my failures, I think that I have
made about eight kernels by now, I thought that making
a floppy can wait until I prove that the CD writer
works.At this point, I do not know how to make a boot
floppy because I doubt that lilo is booting the kernel
that I made.

I did make dep and make clean but not the others. My
guide did not call for them.

My main lilo is on another partition and because cat
/proc/devices lists ide not scsi devices, my guess is
that it is not booting the new kernel. On the other
hand, the line append ="hdc=ide-scsi" disables my
cdrom. If I want to use the cdrom, I must comment out
this line in lilo.

I would like to try booting from the lilo which the
kernel configuration process created.It resides on the
partition where I want to use it, but I do not know
how to boot from the partition.
