I'm not quite sure what you want me to look at for what my bios says about the master. Now it isn't even detecting the hard drives correctly, instead of IBM DHEA... and WDC... it just says Hard Disk 0 and Hard Disk 1...
Something's definetly fubarred but it's in XP. There's another command in XPs Recovery Console besides "fixmbr" but it escapes me at the moment. You're going to have to fix XP before Lilo will work. Can you boot XP at all?
I just went in and tried the fixmbr again (in vain) but it did say something about 'you seem to have an unusual MBR. writing the mbr may damage your partition tables. Continue?' It said this the first time, but I didn't think much of it. Think this could be the problem? I'm just grasping at straws here, but it's all I've got
