    LILO boot error 0x01 dual-boot

    I've got slackware on sda1 and windows xp on sdb1. When I boot it spits out "Error 0x01" which apparently means:
    0x01: Illegal Command
    This shouldn't happen, but if it does, it may indicate an attempt to access a disk which is not supported by the BIOS. Definitely check to see if the disk is seen by the BIOS first (and that the BIOS detail is complete).
    The second hdd is detected in the bios, but for some reason Its not detected as bootable device unless its hooked up as sda instead of sdb. I think this is the problem, but I have no idea how to fix it

    I'm not sure if you guys'll need it but here's my lilo.conf
    append=" vt.default_utf8=0"
    boot = /dev/sda
    bitmap = /boot/slack.bmp
    bmp-colors = 255,0,255,0,255,0
    bmp-table = 60,6,1,16
    bmp-timer = 65,27,0,255
    timeout = 1200
    vga = 790
    # Linux
    image = /boot/vmlinuz
      root = /dev/sda3
      label = Slackware
    # windows 
    other = /dev/sdb1
      table = /dev/sdb
      label = windows
    Any help is appreciated!

    Hi and Welcome !

    Which version of Slackware are you using? Is it possible for you to use GRUB instead?
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
