new encrypted lvm install - can not open /etc/lilo.conf

Hi All,

Trying to do an install with encrypted lvm. I have made it to the end of the install and chroot /mnt and then ran mkintrd which added the modules successfully but then when I ran lilo again I got an error saying that said "fatal: can not open: /etc/lilo.conf". Any ideas what I can do prior to rebooting to fix the issue?
