i am wondering what to add as a boot option (i am running LILO) i tried

nothing you can do at lilo/grub/...
make sure you have compiled your disk controller and filesystem drivers in-kernel (not as modules)

if you do make(use) ide and fs modules ( for whatever odd reason )
	- you need to make a custom initrd.gz file

a "mkinitrd for the dummies", riddled with examples, would be neat

but for a costom kernel without initrd, also don't forget to disable initrd support (in the kernel) (it sits near the RAM fs section)

	- you'd need to edit /linuxrc inside that initrd.gz file to
	load those ide and fs drivers

more booting fun
