I did check the settings in .config. Both BLK_DEV_IDE and

setting them and trying again, and I got the same result.
The drive is a Western Digital 40G drive, model WDC WD400JB-00FMA0. As
I mentioned it's using Reiserfs 3.6. Also I got the source code from
Debian's repository. It's just a Debianized tar ball.
That is quite confusing. As the boot messages fly by, you can stop them
by using Control-S. Another Control-S allows the boot-up to continue.
Use that method to pause the display long enough for you to see how your
IDE drives are recognized by the kernel. I have messages like these:
ide: Assuming 33MHz system bus speed for PIO modes; override with idebus=xx
hda: HDS728080PLAT20, ATA DISK drive
ide0 at 0x1f0-0x1f7,0x3f6 on irq 14
I would hope that you have something similar. Also try roots of
/dev/hdb1 and /dev/hdc1 and /dev/sda1. Even though those are not likely
to work, it's probably worth a try. Can we see the entire boot stanza
used by LILO?
