The /boot directory is usually a mount point for a separate disk
partition.  Sounds like yours isn't mounted.

You can type 'mount' to see what filesystems are mounted.

If you don't see /boot mounted, then take a look at /etc/fstab, and
see if you have an entry for /boot.

If so, try mounting it with something like:

   mount /boot

and see what it does.
