lilo can't find /etc/lilo.conf, even though it's there

I don't know how, but somehow when I try to update lilo and I run
/sbin/lilo, I get the message:
/etc/lilo.conf: No such file or directory

I run 'file /etc/lilo.conf' and it confirms that the file is there and
nothing else is unusual about it.

Running lilo -v only shows the credits to the author then prints that same

Running lilo -C /etc/lilo.conf gives the same message.

I've verified that all files I refer to within lilo.conf are valid.

I've also put "garbage" at the first line of the file and gotten no error,
which makes me think that lilo really isn't able to open the file for some

Anyone have any idea what could be causing this?

Thanks much,
