    SubjectLILO, mixed SCSI and IDE
    Just a heads up about a potential LILO problem.  A SCSI machine had an
    IDE drive added as a temporary storage relief. The motherboard (ASUS
    P/I P65UP5 P55T2D) was told to boot SCSI before IDE (which worked) but
    running LILO 0.19 to pick up a new kernel got warning messages. LILO
    thought the SCSI disk was not drive 0. Next reboot hung on "LI", reach
    for the emergency floppies.

    Turned out the bios was reporting the IDE drive as 0x80 and the SCSI
    boot as 0x81. Solution was to add


    to lilo.conf. I still get warnings but at least it boots now.
