    HDD install problem - Error 0x07 using LILO from boot disk

    I am trying to do a knoppix hd install on an xp machine. I put in
    a 2'nd hard drive so I could keep xp on its own disk. I formatted
    the new drive as follows using cfdisk:

    primary partition: 50 MB
    logical: 3000MB
    logical: 500MB
    logical: 1000MB


    I then did the knoppix install choosing to install lilo to partition instead
    of master boot record. I created the boot disk. Rebooted computer
    and when I select linux, or linux on hdb (i have 2 options for linux boot
    on the menu - I assume they do the same thing) I get the following:

    boot: Linux
    Loading Linux
    Error 0x07

    Windows still boots ok with and without the boot disk.

    Any help would be appreciated. I can cd to those directories on the
    2'nd hard drive when I boot knoppix from the cd and it looks like
    things were setup ok.

    Please post your /etc/lilo.conf

    BTW, if you put Lilo on the Linux drive, don't you have to tell the bios to boot from that drive?

    I will have to wait until I get home to get the lilo.conf data.
    I guess I was thinking if I am booting from the floppy I don't
    have to tell the bios to boot from the hard drive - I thought that
    was what the bootable floppy was for.

    I do have one question - does the parition in which knoppix is
    installed in have to be marked as bootable? I was thinking it
    didn't if I was using the bootable floppy.

    I did make one of the paritions on the 2'nd hard drive (where knoppix
    is installed) bootable but there is nothing there currently - knoppix
    was installed in the other partition.

    Thanks for any info

    Found the problem. I didn't realize this was really a lilo question.
    Problem was new hard drive. Needed to turn on in bios. Thought
    this was automagic since when I booted into windows (before
    reformatting the drive) the drive showed up. :P
