lilo 9A and 99 errors


i have been trying to get lilo working and with no luck.

heres my lilo.conf
Code:
lba32
boot = /dev/hdc
prompt
timeout = 50
vga = normal
image = /boot/vmlinuz
  root = /dev/hde3
  label = linux
  read-only
i dont understand what is wrong

when i run lilo -v this is what i get..

Code:
Reading boot sector from /dev/hdc
Using MENU secondary loader
Calling map_insert_data
Warning: The boot sector and map file are on different disks.

Boot image: /boot/vmlinuz -> vmlinuz-ide-2.4.29
Added linux *

Writing boot sector.
/boot/boot.1600 exists - no boot sector backup copy made.

Hi

The line boot should point towards your first bootable disk normally /dev/hda, /dev/hdc is your second disk controller, and I take it root is on the third primary partition of your third disk controller.

If this your primary drive is in your first disk controller change the boot to /dev/hda and then run /sbin/lilo

could a pci card that has ide slots on it be messing things up?

What I would do is move your drive that is on /dev/hdc to your primary ide controller of your motherboard /dev/hda, modify /etc/lilo.conf and then run /sbin/lilo.

Just as an experiment, that will confirm or rule out whether or not your pci card is messing things up.

After all the normal boot procedure looks for the mbr on the primary ide drive after it has done the post/bios thing.
