After putting in a thread here
about the problems with the kernel, it seems to me as though I need the lilo.conf file; so, if anyone could provide it, it would be greatly appreciated. Basically, this is the round-up of what's happened:
I had a spare partition on my hard-disk so I formatted it and installed Windoze.
It warned me that I might need to re-install the bootloader, so after installing windows (and noticing that I did indeed need to install it), I put in the Mandrake CD and told it to reinstall it.
Lilo comes up, and I can select from a few options, but then I get the "kernel panic error" as described in the thread.
Furthermore, the lilo.conf file is nowhere to be seen.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
