Yes, I think that's my problem. I'm trying to share a harddisk
between NetBSD and Linux, and assigned NetBSD's partition to start from
cylinder 1 instead. I'm thinking of using LILO as boot selector. Any
comment on how that can be done cleanly will be much appreciated (I
really hope this can be done).
Thanks in advance.
