Can't load dynamic linker '/lib/' message

I have just upgraded to
 (so that I could get Xfree 3.2 working on my S3Virge card)

No the Xfree 3.2 works fine but ....

I tried Netscape and it complained that it couldn't load

So I went to the src directory and compiled the test files

running the program etestf
an ELF 32-bit LSB executable i386 (386 and up) version1

works fine.

running the program

atestf a Linux/i386 demand-paged executable (QMAGIC) not stripped

gives the error "cant load dynamic linker '/lib/'

now why is this happening ???

1. Can't load dynamic linker '/lib/'

I am using the Slackware 2.0.0 to install Linux 1.1.18.  This is being done on
a 486 with 8meg, and on a system that has OS/2 and MSDOS currently installed.

I made a primary partition for Linux (100meg) and a 5meg swapfile on a logical
partition (yes, it's small---too small?).  This I did with OS/2's fdisk.

I then went through the installation process with the Slackware boot and
install disks.  I tagged the partitions as 82 & 83, and formatted them within
the installation process.

When I boot up, I get to OS/2 boot manager, where I select the Linux option.
Lilo starts up, but gets hung on loading the dynamic linker:

    init: can't load dynamic linker '/lib/'

I did place LILO in the superblock during setup, and chose for it to load

Is this linker missing from that distribution?  If so, how would I properly
uncompress it.

Any suggestions or comments would be appreciated

Thank you.
