Dual boot


Hi,

I had installed both Linux and windows, and my lilo was working perfectly, i recently formatted my windows partition and installed a new version of windows. Now the problem is that i can seem to load Linux again, as every time the pc reboots it goes straight to windows.
i would like to know how can i load Linux again, without installing a new version of Linux

Reinstalling lilo ought to fix the problem, make sure the config is up to date... If you've already done that, please show exactly the command you did and the contents of the lilo config and the output of fdisk for the boot drive(s). Hope that helps!
