 install native oberon stdalone on hdc?

 Can I install native Oberon StdAlone on a drive that is connected
to my 2nd IDE channel, namely /dev/hdc?

 I get as far as "create new oberon partition", but when I ask it to
display the current partitions, all it shows me are the partitions on my
1st IDE  drive (/dev/hda).

 Thank you.

For release 2.3.6, set config string "IDE=15,170H,376H".  More information
on config strings are at the Native Oberon home page.

The latest beta version supports both IDE interfaces automatically:

  Ok, I tried it this morning, and selected the standard ATA/IDE
driver, but when I executed the show partitions instruction as
directed, this is what I got.

 Disk 1: 3079 Mb

  As can be see from the corresponding Linux/fdisk
output shown below, this is not correct. There is,
for example, no Linux swap partition on Disk 0.

  I find myself reluctant to proceed with the installation
on this basis.

BTW It is not necessary to type in the output, you can save it in Oberon-0
and copy it to a diskette.  Just use ET.StoreAscii * (in Appendix C) and
use DOS.Copy filename => a:/filename ~ to copy the file.

This is really strange.  Do you have a boot manager installed?

Please re-do the above and also do a System.OpenKernelLog (at the
end of Install.Tool) and email me all the output.

Yes, if the partition table display seems incorrect it is better to
investigate more.

Thanks

   I have "LILO" installed on /dev/hda4 and on /dev/hdc2 if that is what
you mean.

   Ok.

   Btw, am I supposed to type "w" after I type in "IDE=15,170H,376H"?

   (I didn't do that above).

   For sure.

That should be ok.  I was wondering if you are using one of the bootmanagers
that "hide" partitions from some operating systems.

If you enter "w", the configuration is permanently written to the boot device.
Otherwise, it only holds for the current session.
