Installed second hard drive... lilo hanging


Here is my current hard drive setup.

4.3 gig IDE --> Primary master --> windows 2000

4.5 gig SCSI --> ID 0 --> Redhat 9

I am trying to install a 10 gig drive into windows for games. When I hook it up, the BIOS sees it properly as primary slave but when it passes POST it hangs upon loading LILO. All I see is the ever popular LI and the system hangs. If I unplug the power to the drive both OS's boot properly. Below is my lilo.conf, which you shouldn't need as I do not want to even see this drive in Redhat, just windows.

prompt
timeout=50
default=DOS
boot=/dev/hda
map=/boot/map
install=/boot/boot.b
message=/boot/message
linear

image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.20-8
label=linux
initrd=/boot/initrd-2.4.20-8.img
read-only
append="hdd=ide-scsi root=LABEL=/"

other=/dev/hda1
optional
label=DOS

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

damanfoo

Make sure the slave drive jumpers are configured correctly.
