[edlug] redhat, lilo vs. grub, kernel-drm



Now and then I install a rawhide kernel.  In the
post-install phase, I generally get an error 
from "grubby" saying (don't have the exact message):
/dev/hda: no such file. 
(There is of course.)

Fair enough, I've always used lilo. I suppose the problem
must be in /boot/grub/grub.conf. But ...

$ grep -v '^#' /boot/grub/grub.conf | grep -v '^[ ]*$'
timeout 30
default 4

kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.20-2.25 root=/dev/hda4
initrd /initrd-2.4.20-2.25.img

initrd /initrd-2.4.20-2.11custom.img

root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz root=/dev/hda4

Is there anything wrong with that? Where's
it getting the /dev/hda from that it's complaining
about? I wouldn't mind switching to grub.

PS: I only install kernels to get kernel-drm, required
for XFree86 rpms.  Is there some way to fool rpm (4.2),
and put kernel-drm in by hand?
