    Where are the kernel files located?

    Ok, when i try to boot yoper using grub, it sats error 15: file not found, being my kernel. I just need to know where the kernel file is so i can change it in my grub.conf file. Thanks.

    I know with gentoo at least you have to copy over your kernel files to /boot

    so for example after I change anything in the kernel I do this.

    cd /usr/src/linux
    cp arch/i386/boot/bzimage /boot//kernel-2.6.10-gentoo-r6
    cp /boot/

    Something similar should be for yoper I think. And also note that kernel-2.6.10-gentoo-r6 is just what I named that file.

    my grub conf looks like this

    default 0
    timeout 30
    title=Gentoo linux-2.6.10-gentoo-r6
    root (hd0,0)
    kernel /kernel-2.6.10-gentoo-r6 root=/dev/hda3
    All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer. All New Users Read This!!! If you have a grub problem please look at GRUB MANUAL
