Hi nando,

Glad to hear from you.

I use LILO as feel confortable with it since the dawn B). Yes, I've already 
tried that one. My lilo.conf entry for the SMP kernal was exactly the 

        append="acpi=off hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi root=/dev/hda3"

Needless to say, to no avail. And the same for the UP kernel. It hangs at 
boot, giving something like:

kernel BUG at sched.c:577!
invalid operand: 0000
CPU: 0
EIP: 0010:[<c0118b8e>] Not tainted
EFLAGS: 00010286

... and more rubbish follows.

Yes I'm keeping the 2.4.19 for good reasons ;) This issue it's not quite a 
showstopper as I'll investigate it further.

Thanks for your attention. I'll be back soon.
