LILO setting with two SCSI harddisks

Dear all,

I'm a newbie in Linux, and recently I've been assigned a task to setup my linux server for both testing and production backup purpose. Since I have a few SCSI slots on the server, I put a development SCSI harddisk (sda) and default boot up for development purpose. I put another cloned production SCSI harddisk (sdb) to be boot up in case of disastrous recovery. I think LILO should do the job and allow me to choose which harddisk to boot from. But I do not quite know how to config the LILO.
Could somebody gives me some tips or show me which article to refer to.

Thanks a lot.

"But I do not quite know how to config the LILO."

You configure a scsi disk just the same as an IDE disk. The only thing that is different is the device name. I am not certain but I think that sda is /dev/scd0 and sdb is /dev/scd1.

Be prepared. Create a LifeBoat CD.
