Question Problems booting after upgrade


I just upgraded from Redhat 7.2 to 7.3 and when I boot up I get past the splash screen and then I see "Loading Redhat........." but it will not load. Below I am posting my lilo.conf file. I have tweaked lio.conf many ways but I still cannot get it to boot. I noticed also that my /boot directory is empty. I took my boot diskette (I can boot from floppy and I can also boot the other distros on this box) and copied the contents into the /boot directory to no avail. What am I overlooking? Any help would be appreciated and thanks in advance.


boot="/dev/hda"
map=/boot/map
timeout="500"
linear
prompt
message=/boot/message
default = Redhat
read-only
install=/boot/boot.b

image="/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.18-3"
label="Redhat"
initrd="/boot/initrd-2.4.18-3.img"
read-only
root="/dev/hda5"

other=/dev/hdb1
label=Conectiva

other=/dev/hdc1
label=Kondara

Mistake on the first thread. I do not have an empty /boot directory. All the files are there that should be.

Thanks, but problem is solved. I had to change "linear" to "lba32" in lilo.conf.
