Thanks to all who responded. I ended up having to follow Ians advice
and wiping out everything and doing a new install. bummer. I have
backups but the real pain in the neck is that this was my amanda index
and tape server, so I get to dig around on the 18 tapes in my daily
rotation to find the latest stuff. oh well it IS working. I have
another box with the identical hardware that is really important and I
am hoping that if I keep my head out of my $%# I will be able to do an
upgrade. For those of you perusing the archives inthe future on a
compaq proliant 3000 dual processor, 1GB memory with smart-2dh raid
controller do NOT let lilo install on the MBR.
I ended up making /boot as the first partition (non-XFS) and putting
lilo there. works like a champ but boy was it painful. BTW I had to do
the compaq erase routine and the associated build twice before it too.
Not sure what I screwed up the first time.
Thanks again for your help and comments.
