thanks for your reply, i have tried that but unfortunately it does not fix the prob.(i get a error message saying it does not exist when i rename the image map and config, if i just put label in it gives error for the label see above) I am having a go at manually compiling the kernel again, to see if i get lilo to like that one. (hopefully so!!!)
edit = Fixed
