Unhappy Lilo boot problem

I have been trying to configure my boot manager (lilo) to do something (I don't remember what it was) and since then the boot option "linux" is missing, there is only "linux-nonfb" and some others. What do I need to do to restore the "linux" option in the boot menu?

1. Open Mandrake Control Center
2. Click on Boot
3. Click Configure
4. Click Ok
5. Click Add
6. Click Linux
7. Change label name to desired name
8. Chose the Image to boot from (probably /boot/vmlinuz)
9. Click Ok
10. Click Ok again

You should now have what you need in your boot menu.
