you mean you installed it onto the first partition boot sector and NOT the mbr yes? as root load up your /etc/lilo.conf in your favouritestestest editor and change
Code:
boot=/dev/hda1
to
Code:
boot=/dev/hda
and run lilo. should be all you need to do. make sure that you still have access to the other partitions for windows though.
