lilo does nothing but show 40 40 40 40 40 40...
im trying to set up debian without a cd or using the floppy drive (its busted) on my second hard drive. i resized the windows partition with partition magic to make room for the linux one, booted up the setup with loadlin, and i can get through the whole install. i put lilo on the second hard drive because its small and expendable (lost everything with lilo one time a few years ago) so i have to change the boot order in my bios to boot to linux. however, when i do this all i get is 40 40 40 40 40 40 40 40 40 which never stops. with a bit of finagling i can make it print 01 01 01 01 but i still cant get it to linux.
anyone have any ideas?
