Unhappy Kernel Compile: Image Cannot Be Found


Hi all...
Help me....I'm using a Twinhead Slimnote VXe notebook...in which I installed Windows 2000 and RedHat 7.1 (dualboot). The Redhat is a partitionless install, and everytime I wanted to access linux, I have to use the bootdisk. But this is not the problem...the problem is, recently something is wrong with my kernel (which is version 2.4.2) and I had downloaded a new kernel version 2.4.4...I had taken all the steps in compiling the new kernel (which I put in /usr/src) and finally produced the image, which I copied to the /boot partition with the name mykernel-2.4.4. I had edited /etc/lilo.conf so that it contains the below information:

boot=/dev/hda2
map=/boot/map
install=/boot/boot.b
prompt
timeout=50
message=/boot/message
linear
default=new

image=/boot/mykernel-2.4.4
label=new
read-only
root=/dev/hda5

image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.2-2
label=linux
read-only
root=/dev/hda5

Then I ran /sbin/lilo command. No errors came out, so I thought all was well. Wrong....when I rebooted and came to this part:

boot:

I put the parameter 'new' so that it will use the new image...but an error came out saying that the image cannot be found (...why is this? I have since recompiled and followed each steps in countless how-tos...but still with the same error...somebody help me please..

if you use a boot floppy, you'll have to make a lilo floppy to boot from.

This might help http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/mini/LILO-8.html
