    How to use my SCSI as a boot drive?


    Hello. I have a regular IDE drive which i put linux on right now, but in the same machine i also have 2 SCSI drives connected through my PCI SCSI card. I found a better use for that IDE drive and want to put it in my machine with XP. Is there any way to use one of my SCSI drives as the main drive, or is it possible to boot from a floppy to load the drivers necessary to boot from the SCSI? I'm new to linux so lamens terms would definately be appreciated. Thanks

    Can your BIOS boot from the SCSI drives? In that case, all you need to do is recompiling your kernel to include built-in SCSI support, and then transfer the filesystem image to that SCSI drive.
