After copying LFS from /dev/hda4 to /dev/sda1 I realized I need to compile
SCSI support into the kernel. After successfully (no errors) doing that, I
wanted to set up grub to allow me to boot from /dev/hda1 (Mepis), /dev/hda4
(first LFS build) or /dev/sda1 (copy of 1st LFS build).
I chrooted into the environment before compiling the kernel
compiled the new kernel on /dev/sda1
followed all the steps in LFS 6.0 (make menuconfig, make, make
modules_install) then moved on to the grub setup. After typing grub I did
the following at the grub> prompt:
and the system returned:
Error 23: Error while parsing number. My questions are:
1) Is there a place that I can find out what this error code (and others) mean
so I can try to figure things out before asking everyone?
2) Is there something special about SCSI hard drives I should know in order to
boot from them? (I did compile everything into the kernel that mentioned
3) How do I fix this?
