how to remove LILO


How can I remove LILO? My system locks up with 'LI' on the screen and beeps until I shut it off. I want to just boot Windows partition and use choice/loadlin in the autoexec.bat file. (Choice can be set up to time out after a few seconds.) Anyway, I can still boot with a floppy, so my choice is either a Win98 boot floppy or a Linux boot floppy (I use Tomsrtbt). Is it possible to remove LILO with either of these floppies? Please reply soon...

fdisk ...

Try to boot on a win 98 floppy disk and then run fdisk /mbr .
I think it will be a solution for remove lilo from masterboot.
Regards.

you should be able to do it from the linux command line as well or from a dos prompt if you don't have a win98 floppy or windows floppy
