grub


I upgraded my redhat kenerl to 2.4.21 and patched web100 to it. After the web100 patching and kernel recompiling, I found that all the contents under /boot is gone except one file kernel.h, which is automatically generated at boot time. However, when I restart the computer, the grub is still loading the previous boot option menu and the system is still able to boot from one of those kernels I installed.

I'd really appreciate it if anybody can clue me on the following questions:

1) Who deleted the contents under /boot, web100 or grub? Is it a mistake or a new booting mechanism?

2) Why is the system still able to boot without grub.conf and image files under /boot? Where do those files go?

Thanks a lot!!

No, I didn't create any partitions after the install.
