correct me if I'm wrong but I think 8.1 chooses grub as the default bootloader not lilo.. In which case you shoyld be looking for the /etc/grub.conf file

Thanks for your reply John,
I just looked at my lilo.conf and there is no mention of either my dvd or my cdwriter. I have no "append=" lines currently so I guess I'll look into the available options I'll let you know how it turns out.
hda is 80gb hard drive hdb should be dvd hdc is second 80gb hard drive hdd should be cdrewriter.
I can mount and use all of my devices but can't turn dma on for any of them.
ps sorry if you got this reply twice, I'm still trying to get the suse lists to recognize my new address
