Lilo device-mapper error

If you receive the following error when running lilo, then you are missing the device-mapper kernel module.

/proc/misc: No entry for device-mapper found
Is device-mapper driver missing from kernel?
Failure to communicate with kernel device-mapper driver.

This kernel module is found at the following location when using make menuconfig

-> Device Drivers
  -> Multi-device support (RAID and LVM)
    -> Multiple devices driver support (RAID and LVM) (MD [=y])
      -> Device mapper support (BLK_DEV_DM [=m])

You can then load the module as follows:

modprobe dm-mod
