how to use lilo to boot between IDE & SCSI drives

Back again with this problem. Posted a few weeks ago but no luck with suggestions that I received--I must be missing something basic in operation or config of lilo. Problem is that I can't get lilo to boot to Linux on second hard drive. Have W98 & RH Linux set-up on first drive (SCSI) and also on second drive (IDE). Using Boot Magic as primary loader which in turn calls up lilo to boot to Linux. Works fine on first drive but not for Linux on second drive. Lilo is in /boot on each drive--sda5 & hda5. Tried many different configs of /etc/lilo.conf but so far no luck. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
