drake doze and slax boot help

Hey All,

Im dual booting atm slax which i have configured lilo to boot and also windows, now ive put drake 10.0 on a logical partition (maybe this is my problem) and configured lilo to boot that also No Probs!,

when i boot drake though it gets cr#p-loads of errors (still boots) but i dont have use of my mouse or anything like that to use once its fully loaded.. - i have installed drake before with just windows with no worries,

with lilo i have just let it auto pick up mandrake i havent manually configured it at all... should I? and if so, How do I?

My current lilo.conf file is :-

# Linux bootable partition config begins
image = /mnt/hda5/SLAX/boot/vmlinuz
label = Slax
root = /dev/ram0
append="max_loop=255 init=linuxrc load_ramdisk=1 ramdisk_size=4444"
# Linux bootable partition config ends
# Linux bootable partition config begins
image = /boot/vmlinuz
root = /dev/hda7
label = Drake
read-only # Non-UMSDOS filesystems should be mounted read-only for checking
# Linux bootable partition config ends
# Windows bootable partition config begins
other = /dev/hda1
label = Windoze
table = /dev/hda
# Windows bootable partition config ends

Doze is the only partition on a primary everything else is logical.

some help with this would be great
