|Ok, at my wits end, which means the solution is probably fairly simple.
I get "Fatal error: Your /boot/second.b is located above the magic 2GB boundary from the start of the disk. Please move it down so that SILO first stage loader can load it." when I go to run silo with:
"silo -C /boot/silo.conf"
Let me give some specs on my partitions:
/dev/sda1 = 64meg boot partition mounts at /boot. (ext2 FS)
/dev/sda2 = 512meg swap
/dev/sda3 = "Whole Disk" Sun disk label deal. (This is a 4GB disk, btw)
/dev/sda4 = 3.5GB root partition at / (ext3 FS)
Now, I would like to mention that my /boot partition (sda1) was created using the _last_ 64MB of cylinders on the disk, which _should_ put it well below the 2GB "magic" boundary, right? So I thought. How do I correct this problem so I can boot my new kernel from disk rather than the generic from gentoo cd?
