LILO Config


I'm trying to configure LILO to boot windows from /hdb (a little 4 gig HD I use to play warcraft on since my video card sucks in cedega) when I turn on the computer and choose the option to boot from there I get an error that says 'Disk Read Error press Crtl+Alt+Delete to reboot.' Is it possible to do what I'm trying? If I have the second hard drive in by itself it boots fine, if they are both in it boots to LILO. I've included my lilo.conf for reference.

boot = /dev/hda
message = /boot/boot_message.txt
timeout = 300
default = Linux-2.6.10
vga = 773

other = /dev/hda1
label = Longhorn-5048
table = /dev/hda

other = /dev/hdb1
label= Windows-XP
table = /dev/hdb

image = /boot/vmlinuz
root = /dev/hda5
label = Linux-2.4.29

image = /boot/vmlinuz-generic-2.6.10
initrd = /boot/initrd.gz
root = /dev/hda5
label = Linux-2.6.10

Thanks for any help

This may be the clue ... are the drive jumpers on the second drive setup for it to be master or slave?
