While not entirely new to linux, i am a n00b to dual booting. And hence why i need your help(if your willing and able to give it
i have a 10gb and a 20gb hdd. Up until now i have used them seperately changing them as i go in my slide, but today i put the 10gb into my actual box, as a Secondary slave. Its existance in my box has been recoginsed by both CMOS and Win2k, but win2k cant access it and it does not show up in 'My Computer'... which i assume is because win2k cant read the ext2 fs. So far i'm thinking yeah well thats oki... then i change the boot sequence of my hdds around, CDROM, IDE-1 (the 10gb), and IDE-0 (the 20gb). Thinking that linux would be able to boot up like that so i cna reconfig LILO. But instead Lilo starts up trying to boot hda, which was the 10gb and is now the 20gb so it cant recognise the fs and i end up with a Kernel panic.
How can i get access to my 10gb (hdd) so i can fix up LILO and what ever else needs to be fixed up?
PC details. (just incase ur confused which hdd has what on it)
hda = 20gb harddrive Win2k (Primary Master)
hdd = 10gb hdd Debian (Secondary Slave)
Something which also sorta confused me, why is the 10gb hdd? hdb i assume is my cdrom, why not hdc? i have nothing else in there other than the harddrives, cdrom and floppy.
