Add Windows to LILO on MBR, partition table problem

Question for da maintainer, what to add to lilo.conf for Windows 7 on /dev/sda2 to be able to boot into it? Windows are mounted on /mnt, no problem whatsoever, I added Windows to lilo.conf, but even after ignore and then fix table commands, no joy bootin' into it. I would post the output of fdisk -l, but why there's no copy & paste possibility in da terminal? I have 4MLinux installed on /dev/sda3, btw, and things are workin' quite lovely...

Highlighting (for coping) and middle mouse button (for pasting) will work for both the directions: "from terminal to terminal" and "from terminal to external GUI" (e.g. text editor or web browser). See:
