will Centos boot without /boot/.vmlinuz*.hmac?

I just accidentally deleted /boot/ . What is this file and will the system boot without it? If not can it be generated, or do I have to load the associated rpm and pull out that one file? The kernel image and initrd etc are all still in place.

Thinking this is some sort of authentication, md5ish checksum thing, I just pulled it out of the rpm, made sure the kernel image (vmlinuz) was identical to mine and all is well. So this is no longer an issue.
