Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

And can you post up your lilo.conf so we can see if you added it correctly? Basically, for global use of that (probably what you want) you'd add it above any kernel specific entries:
i did all this after doing hdc=ide-scsi if that matters
Why are your cdrom devices on the first (primary) chain of the IDE channels? Normally, HD's are on Primary and CD's are on Secondary. You can do whatever you'd like, I'm just curious Sometimes RAID and similar setups have people do this, so again, I'm just wondering.
how do i post my lilo.conf. im almost sure that would be the problem. i was new to installing bootloader manualy. i used mandrake 9.1 before this. it did it for me. and my cd rom/cdburners are on the primary channel. because i have a beautiful Drive controller. Mobo is to old to recognize my 40gb and 80 gb HDDs
