Command-line options to lilo - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Yesterday I compiled support for SCSI emulation and SCSI support into my kernel to enable me to burn CDs. It all turned out well and I was able to blank and burn a CD-RW disk. But a quite irritation thing has arised, which I would appreciate if someone could help me with. When I start the computer and lilo starts, I have to write 'linux hdb=scsi' to enable SCSI support for my CD. Without it, the CD doesn't work att all and I have to reboot the computer to make it work. Is this possible to make lilo do this ...

    Default Command-line options to lilo

    Yesterday I compiled support for SCSI emulation and SCSI support into my
    kernel to enable me to burn CDs. It all turned out well and I was able
    to blank and burn a CD-RW disk. But a quite irritation thing has arised,
    which I would appreciate if someone could help me with.

    When I start the computer and lilo starts, I have to write 'linux
    hdb=scsi' to enable SCSI support for my CD. Without it, the CD doesn't
    work att all and I have to reboot the computer to make it work.

    Is this possible to make lilo do this automatically? I've seen the
    command-line option '-R', but it only works temporary (according to the
    man page).

    in lilo.conf stick a line like:

    append="hdb=ide-scsi"
    or
    append="hdb=scsi"

    what ever will work in your kernel....mines a little olde

    you need the quotes to pass the parameters.

    Funny: this must be an issue with specific cdrom drives. I don't have to
    do this to get my cd burner to work under scsi emulation, but needed it
    for an old cd reader...

    wierd....


    Just configured idescsi emulation and scsi cdrom support in the kernel.
    think thats what you want...at least thats what I've got

    First, isn't it "hdb=ide-scsi"? Second, look a tthe line in your lilo.conf,
    and for the particular LILO entry make it something like this.


    image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.20-8
    label=linux
    initrd=/boot/initrd-2.4.20-8.img
    read-only
    append="hdd=ide-scsi"

    I'd also recommend you use "grub" instead of LILO these days, grub is pretty
    fabulous.
