You will need to add some lines to the lilo configuration file to map the 2nd drive.
Example:
other=/dev/sdd1
label=win98
map-drive = 0x83
to = 0x80
map-drive = 0x80
to = 0x83

Here is the drive mapping:
/dev/hda = 0x80 primary/master
/dev/hdb = 0x81 primary/slave
/dev/hdc = 0x82 secondary/master
/dev/hdd = 0x83 secondary/slave

Be sure to rerun lilo for the changes to become effective.
