Passing parameter to kernel when booting from floppy

My Slackware 9.1 installation is on partition /dev/hdb3 which I boot from a floppy -not from lilo or grub. To start the boot process can I use the following command to pass scsi emulation parameter to the kernel to use my cd-rw drive?

mount root=/dev/hdb3 hdd=ide-scsi

Or do I need to add "append" between hdb3 and hdd?

I bet u don't need that append. Just try it out, it won't hurt ur system ..

Install lilo on mbr (boot=/dev/hda), then u ll not need to boot with diskett again, at least try to make a bootdisk.

# /sbin/makebootdisk
