: Everything I've read on the web suggests passing in the ide2=... parameters to the kernel, which I've tried, without any luck. Does anyone know if the 2.4.7 kernel has a problem in this area? I downloaded 2.4.14 to build, but running 'make xconfig', I didn't find any options that looked like they would affect this area.

I had to use the disk= parameter to get my 7.1 system to boot from the Promise. My lilo.conf contains something like:

disk=device-name
Defines non-standard parameters for the specified disk. See section "Disk geometry" of user.tex for details. Especially useful is the `bios=' parameter. The BIOS numbers your disks 0x80, 0x81, etc. and it is impossible to decide which Linux disk corresponds to which BIOS disk (since this depends on the BIOS setup, and on the type of BIOS), so if you have an unusual setup you need to state the correspondence between Linux disks and BIOS disks. For example,

disk=/dev/hde
bios=0x80

Maybe this is still needed with 7.2.

Best regards,
Reiner.
