First time installation bootloader problems

I installed mandrake 9.1 on my slave harddrive, and i have windows xp on my master. The installation went fine, and in the configure screen i choose lilo graphical as my boot loader. When the installation was over i rebooted and after having to autodetect my slave harddrive agian, it brought up a dos screen that listed: linux linuxsomething somthingelse windows and then boot: which i then had to type in linux to get it to boot to linux. Then my bios antivirus software detected a virus but i continued anyway and it booted up linux. My question is what happen to the lilo graphical interface why wasn't i getting that screen? And how do i change the boot loader now that linux is already installed so that i can use lilo graphical. Any help would be greatly appreciated. This is my first time using linux so i don't know anything about it and will need good explaination ("aka Im retarted")
