w2k + RH8 + Lilo Problem


Hello All

I have installed install RH8 on /dev/hdd with lilo as the bootloader installed to the first sector of the partition. When I boot up linux lilo prints "L 01" with repeating 01. I have w2k installed on the first drive with ntfs as the file system.

Here is my lilo.conf

prompt
timeout=50
default=linux
boot=/dev/hdd
map=/boot/map
install=/boot/boot.b
message=/boot/message
linear

image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.18-14
label=linux
initrd=/boot/initrd-2.4.18-14.img
read-only
append="hdc=ide-scsi root=LABEL=/"

Does any body know how to fix this???
Should Have I installed lilo to the mbr????

Thanks

P

This is what "L 01 01 01..."means:
Quote:
0x01 "Illegal command". This shouldn't happen, but if it does, it may
indicate an attempt to access a disk which is not supported by the
BIOS. See also "Warning: BIOS drive 0x may not be accessible"
in section "Warnings".
I would have installed Lilo to the MBR as the newest version sets things up pretty well that way.
