  1. problem dual booting with a 200 ntfs partition

    I'm trying to dual boot linux with a 200 gig ntfs partition and i'm
    having some problems. Lilo says it cant see the ntfs partition and
    wont boot it (Fatal Partition entry not found). My linux drive is
    40 gig and set to primary master, my windows drive is 200 gig ntfs set
    to secondary master.

    Heres a copy of my lilo.conf:

    boot=/dev/hde
    map=/boot/map
    default=linux
    keytable=/boot/us.klt
    prompt
    nowarn
    timeout=100
    message=/boot/message
    menu-scheme=wb:bw:wb:bw
    disk=/dev/hde bios=0x80
    disk=/dev/hdg bios=0x81
    image=/boot/vmlinuz
    label=linux
    root=/dev/hde1
    initrd=/boot/initrd.img
    append="devfs=mount hdd=ide-scsi quiet"
    vga=788
    read-only
    image=/boot/vmlinuz
    label=linux-nonfb
    root=/dev/hde1
    initrd=/boot/initrd.img
    append="devfs=mount hdd=ide-scsi"
    read-only
    image=/boot/vmlinuz
    label=failsafe
    root=/dev/hde1
    initrd=/boot/initrd.img
    append="devfs=nomount hdd=ide-scsi failsafe"
    read-only other=/dev/fd0
    label=floppy
    unsafe

    other=/dev/hde
    label=XP
    table=/dev/hdg
    map-drive=0x80
    to=0x81
    map-drive=0x81
    to=0x80


    Heres some dmesg info about my drives, in case i just have the mapping
    wrong:

    Ok, this is merely a guess, but shouldn't that be /dev/hdg ?

    disk=/dev/hde bios=0x80 is my linux drive and the other is my windows
    drive.
    I messed with the mapping for like an hour, i'm not completely sure
    thats the problem but i'll take your advice anyway and give it a try
