I think this post
might explain some of the case history here. Still in the process of figuring out that missing hard drive problem, but this seems to be another one.
append="quiet devfs=mount hdd=ide-scsi hdb=ide-scsi"
append="devfs=mount hdd=ide-scsi hdb=ide-scsi"
append="failsafe devfs=nomount hdd=ide-scsi hdb=ide-scsi"
My problem is twofold:
1. One problem line is the one up there at the top, involving /dev/hde: when I run /sbin/lilo, it tells me that there is no /dev/hde, which is quite correct. My question is this: If I were to comment out that /dev/hde line, what would happen? And how has my system booted so far if lilo should be screwed up by this non-working line in its config file??
2. I recently wiped windows, which meant deleting the windows boot partition on /dev/hda (fdisk -d), recreating it (fdisk -n) and reformatting it with mke2fs. All of this has worked perfectly, my system is hunky-dory, and the new partition is happily mounted and contains the DocumentRoot of my apache web server.
Will the absense of an NT partition screw with that
section of lilo.conf, also? Merely trying to anticipate problems when I reboot
Thanks so much, all who've taken the time to read this!
