I'm setting up RAID 1 on my boot and root partitions, using hda and hdc
In order to be redundant, I would like to install my LILO configuration onto the MBR of both my hard drives.
My lill.conf looks like this:
# MBR to install LILO to:
#disk = /dev/md0
boot = /dev/hda #LOOK HERE
map = /boot/.map
install = /boot/boot-menu.b
delay = 50
vga = 791
# Linux bootable partition config begins
image = /boot/gentoo-2.6.11
root = /dev/md1
#root = /devices/discs/disc0/part3
label = Gentoo
read-only # read-only for checking
When boot = /dev/hda (as above), I get no errors when running /sbin/lilo. Thus, the MBR is correctly installed on /dev/hda and the computer will boot if hda is plugged in.
However, when I chagne the line and set boot = /dev/hdc, and then run /sbin/lilo, I get an error:
localhost root # lilo
Warning: /dev/hdc is not on the first disk
Warning: The boot sector and map file are on different disks.
Added Gentoo *
What does this mean? I know that it isn't the first disk, but that should not matter.
When I unplug hda and try and boot with just /dev/hdc plugged in, my screen is just filled with "999999999".
