This is hda1. From linux/Documentation/devices.txt block device 3; 0=hda,
64=hdb; plus partition number. The booting kernel is seeing /dev/hda1 as
a FAT partition.
Have you got your MSDOS on hda; with the disk jumpered as master; and the
old Redhat, on hdb, this jumpered as slave? So is hdc the master on the
second IDE with a CDROM as slave?
You say that you are running lilo; so your boot is off hda, I am not clear
as to your booting method. Is lilo booting the MSDOS and the Linux systems?
I would like you to post your partition tables, and you lilo.conf; since it
is not obvious what is wrong.
