Hey WHAT ????? What do you want with the loop device ? For doing
an ordinary install there is definitely no need for it.

Go into the lilo dir, start QuickInst and follow the directions.
After that, edit /etc/lilo.conf and eliminate the line with
"compact" in it. Also check whether the partition where the lilo
bootcode resides is bootable ( use fdisk ).
If the computer behaves funnily during boot add a line "option
linear" in the lilo.conf. This forces LBA mode. Some HDD
controllers need that ( rare ).

Depends on the adapter. See drivers/scsi/aha152x.c for details
of how to pass arguments to the driver ( contains nice doc at
its beginning ).

Did it work ?
