"EDBA too big." - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

I installed Knoppix on my HD on a separate partition along with Windows 98 and Mandrake 9.0, using Mandrake's LILO. Everything worked well except for some language problems. Then I took it off. I have now repeated the installation, with the only difference being partition sizes. On trying to boot Knoppix, I get the message "EDBA too big." A Google post says that I need to upgrade LILO, but I am using the same LILO as before. Any ideas please? Another question: Knoppix' HD installer seems not to support a multi-partition setup. How can I do this? TIA, Doug. -- ...

    Default "EDBA too big."

    I installed Knoppix on my HD on a separate partition along with Windows 98

    I have now repeated the installation, with the only difference being
    partition sizes. On trying to boot Knoppix, I get the message "EDBA too
    big." A Google post says that I need to upgrade LILO, but I am using the
    same LILO as before.

    Any ideas please?
