hi, 
exactly this is my problem.. i've read the 7.3 section of the handbook and searched 
also other 
forums and sites for this .. it seems i'm not the only one with this problem but i did 
not find 
somewhere an answer..

my lilo.conf looks like this:
other=/dev/sdb1
table=/dev/sdb
loader=/boot/chain.b
label="FreeBSD"

what is going wrong?!

Have you followed the applicable instructions from section 7.3.1 of the
handbook? It give a sample format and instructions specifically for when
linux and FreeBSD are on separate hard drives.

Cheers,

Viktor
