LILO Disk Error Code 0x01


Okay trying linux once again...this time trying slackware, installed it over a few partitions dedicated to RedHat which had the GRUB bootloader on it beforehand. However when I tried installing LILO over GRUB it errored out, so I removed GRUB manually, then I went into Linux configured my lilo.conf file ran /sbin/lilo under root, and all I get at boot up time is L 01 01 01 01...I installed the scsi.s kernal thinking it would work with my adaptec card used for my internal zip...but it doesn't seem to be working, not sure if that has to do with why my Hard Drive is configured as being hdb, anyway here is my lilo.conf file. I'm currently booting from a floppy, which works fine, however I'd really like to boot from the mbr directly, anyhelp here would be much appreciated

# LILO configuration file
# generated by 'liloconfig'
#
# Start LILO global section
boot = /dev/hdb
map=/boot/map

install = /boot/boot.b
timeout=50

#Linux root partition on /dev/hdb3
image = /boot/vmlinuz
label = Linux
root = /dev/hdb3
vga = ask

#Windows XP Partition on /dev/hdb1
other = /dev/hdb1
table = /dev/hdb
label = Windows

#message = /boot/boot_message.txt
#prompt
#timeout = 1200

# Override dangerous defaults that rewrite the partition table:
#change-rules
# reset
# VESA framebuffer console @ 1024x768x64k
#vga = 791
# Normal VGA console
# vga = normal
# VESA framebuffer console @ 1024x768x64k
# vga=791
# VESA framebuffer console @ 1024x768x32k
# vga=790
# VESA framebuffer console @ 1024x768x256
# vga=773
# VESA framebuffer console @ 800x600x64k
# vga=788
# VESA framebuffer console @ 800x600x32k
# vga=787
# VESA framebuffer console @ 800x600x256
# vga=771
# VESA framebuffer console @ 640x480x64k
# vga=785
# VESA framebuffer console @ 640x480x32k
# vga=784
# VESA framebuffer console @ 640x480x256
# vga=769
# End LILO global section
# Linux bootable partition config begins
#image = /boot/vmlinuz
# root = /dev/hdb3
# #label = Linux
#read-only
# Linux bootable partition config ends

do you have any IDE drives in your system. BIOS tend to give hda to IDE drives and then goon with SCSI drives. so there is a way to cheat around this.

bios calles the first drive 0x80 the second drive 0x81 and so on.

so in your lilo.conf file add these

disk = /dev/sda
bios = 0x80
disk = /dev/hda
bios = 0x81 ( if you have a IDE drive )

execute it and then try booting

Yes my system is IDE based...I just have a zip running on a scsi card that is all...so I have one IDE Hard Disk and two IDE CD Drives
