Change default boot kernel


I all!

I'm not really new to linux, but I just know what I need to know for my application !!

I've install Slackware 10.2 under VMware and VMware don't want me to add a second IDE physical drive.

So I wan't to add it as a SCSI device but don't find how to switch my default boot kernel from bare.i to scsi.s

Does someone could help me with this please !!

I've made some search on web but don't find this...

Thanks all,

Franck

Remove /boot/vmlinuz, put bzImage in /boot and rename it vmlinuz.
Remove /boot/System.map, unzip System.map and put it in /boot.
Run lilo.

thank you, I've made those change, reboot server with my SCSI drive Activite true VMware (SCSI 0:0) but I don't find it in /dev/

SCSI device are sc* right?

I've try "dmesg | grep sc" and this is what it tell:

root@server:/dev# dmesg | grep sc
kmod: failed to exec /sbin/modprobe -s -k scsi_hostaadapter, errno = 2
kmod: failed to exec /sbin/modprobe -s -k scsi_hostaadapter, errno = 2
kmod: failed to exec /sbin/modprobe -s -k scsi_hostaadapter, errno = 2
scsi0 : SCSI host adapter emulation for IDE ATAPI devices

Does I have to do something for my SCSI device to be detect?

Thanks

Ok, so "dmesg | grep sd" should reply something?

Because right now if I write this, it does nothing. It just return to bash (#)

You have:
scsi0 : SCSI host adapter emulation for IDE ATAPI devices
So perhaps /dev/hd* are created.
