This should help lilo boot win9x from a drive other than hda:

(tried and tested with lilo-22.2)

# /etc/lilo.conf


disk=/dev/hda bios=0x80
disk=/dev/hdb bios=0x81
disk=/dev/hdc bios=0x82
disk=/dev/hdc bios=0x83

( all your lilo.conf here )

	map-drive = 0x80
	       to = 0x82
	map-drive = 0x82
	       to = 0x80

# end lilo.conf

As for installing Win98 onto hdc, the easiest way must be to physically
swap the disks, get 98 installed, and swap them back.

This results in win98 being installed into hdc1, 98's MBR being
installed into hdc, thus lilo and linux left intact.

HTH, Shaun.
