i think i means that the default boot loader does not know how to handle the system on the second disk. Can you give more details about your lilo.conf ?

May be I should put it like this.  My second drive is partition for Windows95.  I do not repartition it or reformat it.  However,the size of that drive exceeds 510 MB which means lilo cannot recognize it.  Therefore,what should I do in order to let lilo recognize it ?

try to use 'loader=/boot/any-d.b' or perhaps 'loader=/boot/any_b.b' in your "other" entry. I think it's any_d.b. lilo don't have bios restrictions with LBA translated disks, but just with old bios (but in this case dos cannot recognize more than 503 Mo without a tool like disk manager or ezdrive).

good luck
