    Boot loader failed, missing? - Mdk 8.1

    Okay, i'm quite certain now that rebooting a Linux OS is asking for trouble every time!

    I'm running a dual boot Linux Mandrake 8.1/Windows 2000 (each on their own drives) and for some odd reason Linux is no longer booting up. I tried updating through the installation CD and got the following error with the Boot Loader installation:

    Installation of Boot Loader failed. The following error occured:
    Fatal: open /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.8-26mdk: No such file or directory


    Now, I know it was there the other day!
    I rebooted to do a few things in Windows and this problem arose on rebooting.

    Please help, i'm trapped in windoze and I can't get out!

    I'm sure there's someone around that'll have even a suggestion for what to do here. Hopefully, quite hopefully!
