I went through the first 25 results
none of them had what I put behind "image="
none of them covered the simple case of
windbloze on /dev/sda2
linux on /dev/sda3

That is simply because there will be no image entry. Windows is started via chainloading from lilo, I should have made that more clear.
Try an entry in the lilo configuration file like
Code:
other=/dev/hda1
    label=Windows
Of course you have to replace hda1 with your real Windows-partition.

By the way, I found this information in the first link.

The relevant sections of my Slackware 13.1/Windows 7 lilo.conf file. Windows on sda and Linux on sdb.

Code:
boot = /dev/sda

# Generic Kernel Linux bootable partition config begins
image = /boot/vmlinuz
  initrd = /boot/initrd.gz
  root = /dev/sdb1
  label = Linux
  read-only
# Generic Kernel Linux bootable partition config ends

# Windows bootable partition config begins
other = /dev/sda2
  label = Windows
  table = /dev/sda
# Windows bootable partition config ends
