I am having an interesting and slightly perplexing problem, I at the beginning of my install had to use modprobe cmd64x to load my IDE drivers to see my harddrive...When it loads this module my harddrive becomes hdc

This wouldn't seem like a problem but now when I have completed everything else my linux will not boot because in the boot process it loads the cmd driver before the cd drivers hence making my harddrive now hda.

This makes my root entries and my fstab wrong...I have editted my fstab to reflect the change but I cannot write yaboot to do it because mkofboot will not write it because /dev/hda2 does not acctually exist when I have the ability to edit it...

So what I would need to know is either how to make my harddrive stay as hdc or how to force mkofboot to write a configuration file to hdc2 while considering it hda2...If that made sense.

Either way, any help would be appriecated, Thanks in advance.

I solved this myself by adding an ofboot=hd:2 statement to my yaboot.conf while still keeping my boot=/dev/hdc2 but changing everything else to use hda....if that made any sense at all
