Triple Boot w/Lilo


Recently i took it upon myself to setup a triples booting system setup as follows (3 seperate hard drives), hda=XP , hdb=redhat 9, hdc=mandrake 9.1. Mandrake was the last to be installed with defaults for installation. The problem i have now is that Lilo doesn't present me with a boot option for either of my Redhat kernels, it only lists boot options for mandrake and XP. Copy of lilo.conf below:

boot=/dev/hda
map=/boot/map
default="linux"
keytable=/boot/us.klt
prompt
nowarn
timeout=100
message=/boot/message
menu-scheme=wb:bw:wb:bw
image=/boot/vmlinuz
label="linux"
root=/dev/hdc1
initrd=/boot/initrd.img
append="devfs=mount hdd=ide-scsi acpi=off quiet"
vga=788
read-only
image=/boot/vmlinuz
label="linux-nonfb"
root=/dev/hdc1
initrd=/boot/initrd.img
append="devfs=mount hdd=ide-scsi acpi=off"
read-only
image=/boot/vmlinuz
label="failsafe"
root=/dev/hdc1
initrd=/boot/initrd.img
append="devfs=nomount hdd=ide-scsi acpi=off failsafe"
read-only
other=/dev/hda1
label="windows"
table=/dev/hda
other=/dev/fd0
label="floppy"
unsafe

I'm a newbie (like you don't hear that everyday) and need help with exactly what to insert here and the steps needed to have my other redhat kernels listed as boot options. i now bow my head and pray to the penguin god for assistance.

Add hdc to /etc/fstab

Once done, make a folder in / .... call it /mandrake

the go to lilo.conf, put in
label="linux"
root=/dev/hdc1
initrd=/mandrake/boot/initrd.img
append="devfs=mount hdd=ide-scsi acpi=off quiet"
vga=788
read-only

run 'lilo' in xterm and then restart.
