Module-init-tools help...

I am trying to update module-init-tools 0.9.14 and i get this error after running the ./configure and make command...

[root@Linux~Powered module-init-tools-0.9.14]# make install
gcc -g -O2 -Wunused -Wall -Wcast-align -o insmod.static -static insmod.o
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lc
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [insmod.static] Error 1
[root@Linux~Powered module-init-tools-0.9.14]#

any idea what this means?

It means it can't find the library (libc.a) to link to. Do ls /usr/bin/libc.a and ls /lib/libc.a. Is the file there? Did you have the glibc-devel (or equivalent) package installed?

Cool... I got it working, but when i go to edit GRUB there is no conf file in /etc/grub.config. There was one on my version of RH9, so how do i go about editing it? Do i have to make one from scratch? I have GRUB 0.93 installed now default of Mandrake, but no config file to edit.
