you have to also invoke 'make zlilo' to implement the changes you made
in lilo config.  Make sure you leave in the disk from the zdisk step.
(see /usr/src/linux/README for more info).  Alternatively, you can
run the 'setup' script, skip the software installation and choose the
re-install step'.  Choose the floppy boot disk option (use a blank, formatted
disk), and also choose option 4 (install lilo to boot floppy) when it
gets to the lilo install step.  Skip all the other steps.

Good luck,

1. Help to boot new kernel with grub -delited the old kernel before tried the new one

Can someone help, how to update Grub so I can boot into linux. I
updated the kernel with up2date software on RedHat and followed the
Instructions to delete the old kernel files from /boot and now I can't
boot into anything old or new kernel. What do I do to boot into linux.
And Grub boot loader doesn't let me run any usefull commands. Thank
you. I tried to update Redhat 7.3 so it would let me boot into linux
but that didn't work. Thank you.
