Thanks for the replies.  I will give grub a try.  I kinda liked
lilo though. :)

Not sure if this is appropriate for your case but have you looked at 
the the disk option of lilo.conf (5)?

 I have a SuperMicro P6DBU motherboard with built in SCSI.  All
 the drives are SCSI on the system.  I just recently bought a 80G
 IDE drive to use for storage.
 
 The problem is that after I installed the drive the system booted
 up fine.  I have the bootup in the bios to start with Floppy
 then SCSI drives.  It worked fine.
 
 I was adding an append for the /dev/hda in lilo and ran lilo.
 When I did it gave me an warning that the drive /dev/sda was
 not the first drive in the system.  After rebooting the bios
 said it was booting from SCSI as normal but I got the constant
 01 01 01 01 thing.
 
 I've tried various things like returning lilo to it's original
 configuration and the bios was not modified from when It used
 to boot fine.  I'm thinking it's a lilo confusion problem.
 
 The way I got around this was to install lilo on /dev/hda with
 other=3D/dev/sda in it (the only thing in lilo.conf.hda).  And
 keeping lilo on /dev/sda to boot the system.  It works fine
 like that.  As long as I set the bios to boot from IDE primary master
 instead of from SCSI.  The problem with that setup is I can't
 boot from CDrom unless I change the bios back to booting from SCSI.
 
 I'm just wanting to know if there are any lilo tricks to get it to
 see /dev/sda as the first drive.  Or if anyone has experience with
 the SuperMicro P6DBU Board that knows of this problem.
 
 Thanks

I too had a problem like this with lilo (except I installed
a SCSI drive with an IDE drive already on the system and
then made a fresh install of debian on the SCSI hd). I then
installed grub and no longer have this problem :)
