anaconda writes grub?

I have no /boot/grub/grub.conf or /etc/lilo.conf . Is this because I chose no bootloader when installing Redhat? Is their a way to make anaconda write one(preferably grub.conf) for me now?

I'm running an rpm based distro (OpenLinux), which puts grub.conf in /etc. You might look there for it. You could also open a terminal and run updatedb, to update the database of all files installed on your box. Then run 'locate grub.conf' to see if grub.conf is located somewhere else. NOTE: you may have to su to root in order to run updatedb.
