syntax problem

Trying to use lilo to boot RH linux on second drive--so far with no luck. I think the problem is due to system geometry as I have SCSI as disk one and IDE as disk two. After reading all the lilo docs I think I need to use the "append" parameter so lilo can "see" the second disk but can't find any info on proper syntax to use. Each time I write an append line in /etc/lilo.conf and run lilo it says "syntax error" and refers to the append line.What append line syntax would I use?Running W98 & RH 7.0 on drive one(SCSI) with lilo in sda5 /boot. Also running W98 and RH7.0 on second drive (IDE).
