Confusing Hardware Problem

I've just added a third removable SCSI drive to my mail box (this one running SuSE 7.1). Prior to adding this drive I had one drive running win 98se (which I've discussed prior) and the other SuSE 7.1 The box dual boots with LILO running as the boot manager. With just the two drives turned on, LILO runs as expected and I can boot into either OS. With the new drive turned on (I just did a reformat on it and there is no OS installed, just a low level DOS fdisk format) all goes well during boot until LILO starts and then elects to stop at LI with the blinking cursor.

I'm totally lost as to how I can boot with this drive on so I can add another OS to it. Would someone kindly point me to my obvious error. Since it's a SCSI drive, it has to be on at boot up in order to been seen and thus used.

Many thanks,
