RedHat 7.1 and LILO

I installed redHat7.1. When i tried to boot up again, LILO nor grub came up What should i do?

Here are some specs: I previouslt had mdk7.1 on my dual boot between win98 and linux. I tried to install RH7.1 over mandrake. It formatted correctly and it installed all the packages. But when i reboot the system, Lilo nor Grub came up. Maybe i missed something in the install dialog. Help appreciated.

What do you get when you reboot- anything?

When you did the install, you should have gone through a section where you configured a bootloader, either lilo or grub- which did you choose?

If lilo, did you install it to the root directory, or the Master Boot Record?

If you made a boot/rescue floppy, can you boot from that?
