    grubby: unable to open "/dev/hda": No such file or

    I am getting the following error message while trying to install the 2.6.2 kernel:
    grubby: unable to open "/dev/hda": No such file or directory
    grubby fatal error: unable to find a suitable template

    The command that I am running is the following:
    sudo make O=/root/kernel/build modules_install install

    Previous to that I ran the following commands without any errors:
    make O=/root/kernel/build menuconfig
    make O=/root/kernel/build

    Here is my /etc/fstab file:
    LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
    LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
    none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
    none /proc proc defaults 0 0
    none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
    /dev/hda3 swap swap defaults 0 0
    /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0

    What do you think it might be?

    Thanks in advance,

    Your /boot/grub/grub.conf is missing or corrupt??

    Perhaps it should be /dev/hda1 or summat?

    the reason that it didn't work is that
    boot="/dev/hda" had the quotes.

    I took the quotes off, and everything started working fine.

    Thanks for the replies!
