    Configuration Problem


    Hello. I have a problem with Linux (Red Hat 9) configuration. In control center when I check the configuration an error message appeared like "Configuration not ok. LILO said. Warning: device 0x0303 exceeds 1024 cylinder limit. Fatal: geo_comp_addr: Cylinder number is too big (3084>1023)." My motherboard is Giga-Byte 8ID533 sdram.
