Boot Problem


Hi

i have some problems when i try to boot from my linux HD.
I have linux Debian Woody on a seperate scsi HD, and Win2000 on a IDE.
My problem is that when i try to boot form the SCSI HD i get a screen full of 01.

my lilo.conf lookes like this :

boot=/dev/sda
map=/boot/map
install=/boot/boot.b
prompt
delay=20
image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.18-bf2.4
label=Linux
root=/dev/sda1
other=/dev/hda1
label=Windows2000

vga=normal

What should i do?
Thanks

Mikkel

Hmmm ... check your BIOS settings
for the boot order.

The problem might be caused by
you installing lilo in the SCSI-hdd's
mbr when the actually booted device
is the IDE-drive.

Cheers,
Tink

my boot order is first the scsi then the IDE
But when i installed Linux it was the other way around. Is that was cause the problem?

almost certainly mate
Boot the box of a floppy, chroot to your real linux root,
and re-run lilo

Cheers,
Tink
