Do you know if this board works if you are a) using LILO and b) have lba32
specified in /etc/lilo.conf?
Comment 3 David Thompson 2001-12-08 12:51:35 EST
Yes, it works fine with lilo in linear mode (that's what I'm doing now for a
workaround) and lba32 mode.
Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2002-01-02 15:12:02 EST
Could you try the test package at http://people.redhat.com/~katzj/grub/.  If you
install the package and then run `/sbin/grub-install /dev/hda` (or wherever you
have grub installed other than /dev/hda) and let me know if that works better,
it would be great.
Comment 5 David Thompson 2002-01-07 15:40:13 EST
...and there was much rejoicing (yeah)

Yes, with the test rpm grub works great with this motherboard.  Modulo the
standard caveats, is there any reason I shouldn't use this in a production red
hat mirror (mirror.cs.wisc.edu)?

Comment 6 Jeremy Katz 2002-01-07 15:49:25 EST
Not that I know of...  boot loaders tend to be a "if it works once, it will keep
working" type of thing, and it's also pretty close to version 0.91 from all that
I gather.  Closing as rawhide since this will show up there soon.
