Re: scsi and ide

Which Drive are you ttrying to boot from?
and what are the scsi id numbers?

If you are going to boot from the ide then you should not have any of the scsi
drives set for id 0

and if you are booting from the scsi (only from id 0 - or 1 (i think) then i
believe you should not have the ide's defined in the cmos, but allow their
setup to be done by linux and its fdisk. (although i am somewhat fuzzy on this.
I remember seeing it mentioned somewhere.)

Hope I havn't made too much a fool of myseeeeeeeeelf here, but i know you can
do it, and i bet it will have to do with where you are trying to boot from and
your scsi id's
