I did as suggested, but it lead to small problem. I cannot boot the new kernel.

The lilo doesn't understand line "root=/dev/sdb1" when run from system
with the old kernel.

So i tried using uuid. It also didn't help.

#        append="quiet"

I thought about grub, but because of some reason (I guess BIOS
problem, as it takes ages to start the box) it didn't want to install
into the MBR.

Do you have any suggestion how move to the kernel with "SATA only support"?
