Hi!
I have problems in getting Redhat 7.0 work together with Win98. The problem seems to be LILO - it doesn't support big partitions(?). My LILO version is lilo-22.0-1. The question I have is that where I can get LILO update to solve the problem I have? Or do I have some other problem???
My HW setup is AMD Athlon 750MHz CPU, Maxtor 30GB HD.
When giving command /sbin/lilo, following text comes out:
Warning: device 0x0307 exceeds 1024 cylinder limit.
Use of the 'lba32' option may help on newer (EDD BIOS) systems.

Yep, it's the 1K cylinder limit in LILO. I usually just partition down so my Linux boot is under the limit, but you might want to check out some other options - the Grand Unified Bootloader (GRUB) is one, and I understand that RedHat 7.2 will prefer it to LILO. You can read about it here: http://www2.linuxjournal.com/lj-issues/issue85/4622.html
If you prefer to stay with LILO, I'd check out http://rpmfind.net to see what the latest LILO is and what has been done to it recently.
