I repartitioned my Quantum Capella with the new aha152x driver for my
aha282 in 1.99.12.
Now I have got I clean disk, no more errors and I'am also able to install
LILO (by the way I boot off my IDE-disk).
BUT: I can no longer boot up with LILO. It stops with the two letters
"LI" and doesn't go any further. I reinstalled lilo bye fdisk /mbr under
DOS and afterwards lilo under Linux, but there was no change.
How can I get my system boot up again with LILO?
