Ok, I have a WD1200JB, WD400BB, and IBM 120GXP 60 GB drive, along with two Fujitsu MAN3184MP drives, and a MAM3364MC. Linux is installed on /dev/sdc1, with swap being /dev/sdc5, I believe. Windows is on /dev/hda1, just where it likes to be. Problem is....I can't get ANY bootloader to work. I'm posting this from linux, because I got Linux to install, and if I boot from the slack CD with my root mounted, then I can get into Linux. However, I would like my WinXP back, and I'd like to get either LILO or GRUB working, preferably GRUB. So...without further adieu, my menu.lst.
# Generated by grubconf-0.5
#:0 <-- type: 0 => linux, 1 => windows, 2 => other
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sdc1
#:1 <-- type: 0 => linux, 1 => windows, 2 => other
What's happening is I'm getting an Error 25 from GRUB, which supposedly means it can't read from the disk. I tried rootnoverify for the WinXP partition also.
When I try LILO, I get an "L" by itself, then "02 BB 02 BB" repeating over and over at the rate of about one per second. For those of you who are interested, my lilo.conf
I don't know what's going wrong here. Linux gods, please help me! I would very much like to be able to keep my linux on my SCSI, since it is far more deserving of the speed than WinXP.
