I tried that initially and it worked very well from a performance point of
view. I first installed my system on a spare IDE disk and when booting from
that disk, everything worked fine. However, when I removed that disk and
wanted to boot from the SATA disks (configured in a RAID-1 configuration),
the drives weren't found by linux and consequently the root couldn't be
mounted, resulting in a kernel panic.
I've only tried this together with a software RAID-1 configuration
(root=/dev/md0) and not with stand-alone disks, but I'm pretty sure that my
lilo config was correct.
Has anyone experienced anything similar?
