Description of problem:
I have been trying to get 8.0.93 installed on /dev/hdh1. Installation is fine 
including creation of partition, formatting and file copying.
However, I can't boot from it with either GRUB or lilo, with or without 
adavanced options. Set up is as follows:

/dev/hda has Windoze + Redhat 8.0 off the main IDE controller on the mobo 
/dev/hde and /dev/hdg are 2 drives in RAID0 on HPT372 controller on this ABIT 
KR7A-RAID mobo. /dev/hdh is a slave drive on the HPT372 primary channel and is 

Install on /dev/hdh1 is fine. I have tried lilo and GRUB in root sector 
of /dev/hdh1 and MBR on /dev/hda but couldn't ever boot it. Tried to force 
LBA32, no joy.

In the end overwrote 8.0 with 8.0.93 on /dev/hda1. When running from that 
partition, I can mount /dev/hdh1 and all files seem to be there and all is 
fine. Definitely a boot problem.

New /dev/hdh drive is 80GB Maxtor DiamondMax 9 Plus.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Set up as above
Actual results:
Received GRUB HARD DISK ERROR or hangs when trying lilo.
When trying to use lilo to overwrite a MBR on /dev/hda, nothing happens and the 
old MBR is left intact without being replaced.
Marked /dev/hdh as bootable in HPT372 BIOS and try to boot directly from 
ATA133RAID. Get the same results/error messages as trying to boot from /dev/hda.

Expected results:
Should allow to boot from /dev/hdh1
