Happy new year to everyone,
I've installed Mandrake 9.1 on a VMWare virtual machine.
Yesterday, while playing with /boot, I deleted the kernel
(vmlinuz-2.4.21-0.13mdk), beliving it was an older version, while it
was the current one (vmlinuz -> vmlinuz-2.4.21-0.13mdk).
I did the same with config, initrd.img and System.map...
A ls -l later I realized I did a really stupid thing and ed up my
whole installation. I rebooted sure I had to reinstall/repair from
Mandrake CD, but, instead, my system booted just fine.
Can somebody explain this?
Is the kernel stored elsewhere after invoking /sbin/lilo?
Or am I just lucky ...
