The second HDD have to be ext2.

You don't need to configure lilo. You can use loadlin (find it on google). I'm starting my Knoppix with loadlin. You just need vlimuz and the HD (ex. /dev/hdc3).

My favourite instructions are here:


cfdisk will see hda3, just partition it.

I'd advise using Lilo (but make a boot disk anyway in case you need to re-install Windows): it'll give you a simple option to boot Windows or Linux, while LoadLin requires that you load Windows first (slower, and what happens when Windows falls over?).
