Installing Slackware 10 over SuSE 9.1, need to change bootloader in the MBR


I've got GRUB installed with SuSE, but I wish to use LILO with Slack. I've got a Win XP partition as well. Now, please help me out, because I forget how to reset the MBR for a clean bootloader install.

Isn't it just to install lilo over grub during installation of slackware?!?
Just remember to put it on the MBR.

I thought it might, but I felt it best to ask just in case. I'm not too keen on making it unbootable accidentally, eh?

I've done many reinstallations of my slackware on my dual-boot machine without any problems and without reinstalling windows.
So I'm sure it would't be a problem for you. Hope everthing goes well for you
