lilo : boot.b


I had to install the kernel of the cdrom red hat
to have my new computer run linux.

When launching /sbin/lilo, I get :
Fatal: open /boot/boot.b: No such file or directory

How do I create (or have it created) this file?
I guess it must fit my environment, my lilo version , etc...

'locate lilo' gives me :
/etc/lilo.conf.anaconda
/etc/lilo.conf
/usr/bin/keytab-lilo
/usr/share/doc/lilo-21.4.4
[...]
/usr/share/locale/fr/LC_MESSAGES/kcmlilo.mo
/usr/share/man/man5/lilo.conf.5.gz
/usr/share/man/man8/lilo.8.gz
/usr/share/man/fr/man5/lilo.conf.5.gz
/usr/share/man/fr/man8/lilo.8.gz
/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/elilocfg.py
/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/elilocfg.pyc
/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/lilo.py
/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/lilo.pyc
/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/lilocfg.py
/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/lilocfg.pyc
/usr/share/vim/vim61/syntax/lilo.vim
/sbin/lilo

I used to have some others on my right installed Mandrake...
I suspect lilo isn't really installed.

thanks

"I suspect lilo isn't really installed."

my friend, i share your fears..... check "rpm -qa | grep lilo" to see if it's installed, boot.b should come with the lilo package, as do the lilo binaries, which aren't in your listing there, but you did edit it...
