I had the following setup:
Intel Plato board (AX12 Bios with SDMS), IDE disk for DOS, lilo in MBR.
3 scsi diskc, /dev/sda is for dos, sdb has /tmp on it and sdc has linux
root/usr/home. The scsi disks were handled by an NCR 53C810 adapter.

When running lilo, I got some messages saying 'bios drive 0x82 may be unaccessible'
- but everything worked fine.

I just removed the old sda from my system, so now the messages are gone.
