    Code:
    ls /boot
    this will list your boot directory. You shoiuld be able to see links to your kernel, initrd, and your grub or lilo conf files.

    I could find the solution, actually I wanted to know the presently which boot loader is in my MBR:

    I have tried the below command:

    # head -c 512 /dev/sda

    $spacer_close
