Sorry about that. It's just frustrating to see the same (or very similar)
questions once a week.

It would help if you could give us more information. Is this a dual boot
system (Linux and/or DOS, Win, etc)?

Have you specified the parameters for the hard disk in a boot option?
I.e., when you start up the system, press shift at the Lilo prompt and

linux hdc=xxx,xx,xxx

What does your /etc/lilo.conf look like? I'll try and post mine tonight
when I get home. I can also give some more information that'll help you.
