I have a terrible job with making old distros to boot because their /dev doesn't list all high-number partitions I created.
Typically they stop at hda24 but I want to use the maximum hda63 permitted by Linux.
I can boot these distros, installed aat or moved to partitions higher than 24 by Grub but I would like to learn ways to persuade Lilo too.
At the moment Lilo reports
It is a bit of a laugh as I boot it by Grub and using this distro to post.
root@1[root]# lilo -b /dev/hda61
Ignoring entry 'boot'
Fatal: open /dev/hda61: No such file or directory
The distro I am working on is Slynux 2.0, with 2.4.27 Kernel and a Lilo 22.2 but I got others in the same situation.
There doesn't seem a lot of information on /dev and how to create additional entries. May be I am looking at the wrong spot.
