Do you have any other drives in the system?  (stand-alone scsi drives, ide
drives, anything)

Comment 2 Jim Hildreth 2001-11-20 20:47:53 UTC

I have gotting the problem solved. I had to change the device.map. The install 
saw a LUN 0 drive that EMC has to have out thier. The orginal device.map file 
had 3 entries
(fd0) /dev/fd0
(hdo) /dev/sda
(hd1) /dev/sdb
The new file is
(fd0) /dev/fd0
(hd0) /dev/sdb

I then had to change the grub.conf to (hd1) to (hd0).

This makes it boot. The problem was the LUN 0 and how grub installed it.
