This one took me some looking at source code (perhaps because my PC110
install was my FIRST experience with Linux) six months ago, but... LILO
can't handle booting off the second controller. The CF slot is controller
#1, the PCMCIA slot is controller #2. My only way around this was to
switch to using LoadLin (which works quite well).
