9 It's the second drive, master on my HPT370 controller. The first drive is
10 master on the chipset IDE controller. I have tried root (hd0,0), (hd1,0),
11 (hd3,0) and (hd4,0).
13 Contrary to what has been implied in other posts I have RTFM (I used to run
14 OpenBSD before Gentoo) and haven't had any success on my ABIT KT7.
16 I have grub working quite nicely on my laptop and on my server. FWIW I also
17 have DJBDNS and Qmail running quite nicely on the server as well......
19 I'm not opposed to grub in any way, I simply have not had the same degree of
20 success with it as I have with lilo. And judging from the number of posts
21 here on the topic I am by no means alone in this.
23 The original poster to whom I replied seemed to question why anyone would
24 possibly want to run anything other than grub, so I was trying to help him
25 out.
