lilo and 3 hard drives

My compruter : I've got 3 HD and one operating system on each one.
1) primary mastrer -> linux
2) pri slave -> windows
3) sec master -> windows
I can boot from lilo on 1) and 2), but when I boot on 3) -which is /dev/hdc- I get the folowing message :
** disk error or non-system (or something like that).

On the other hand, I my computer boots on 3) easily when it stands alone -1) and 2) disconnected-.

Any idea welcome (I hope lilo supports 3 OS)

What partition is the 3rd OS on? it is on the 3rd drive.. but you also need to specify the partition..

I am assuming it is it is partition 1. so rather than point it to /dev/hdc you should do /dev/hdc1
