Dear all,

The thing is that I have only one drive, it is a Combo DVD/CD-ROM/CD-RW drive.

Maybe I can do this by inserting a new entry into LILO that don't has the
parameter to treat IDE as SCSI drive.

I compiled it now into the new kernel.

Will do.

I was trying to make a new kernel (2.4.17) I tried to make it as similar as
possible to the old one but I receive different messages at boot so I am not
quite sure if it was successful. But nevertheless it boots :-).
Since I am very busy at work right now I have not much time to check except at
weekend. It took me the whole saturday night to complie the kernel.

Another question. If I want to start from scratch it is then better to delete
all mplayer related files and libraries? I mean to start with a real clean
environment and not having old stuff as a left over somewhere lying
around. How can I find the files?

Thanks again.
