Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

There's several ways to do it. But the main thing to remember is that when using mdk's lilo, you are accessing the lindows boot directory through the mandrake mount point for the lindows root partition. That's your main error. I think the lindows entry should look something like this:
It should work but you won't get the normal lindows boot screens; that's why there's no vga line. I'm also not sure whether you should use the 'devfs=mount" in the append line as I don't know if lindows uses devfs. The lindows lilo also has some wierd stuff in the append line for the swap partition(/dev/hda8). I don't know what they're doing there but you might want to add the "redetect resume=/dev/hda8" to the mdk lilo append line if you have troubles with swap in lindows.

MANY THANKS !!!
I will try and let you know !
I deleted Lindows and I will try to install it once again and install lilo on Lindows partition. MDK enables it, I will try Lindows to do the same.
hda8 is O.K. It is swap partition of MDK.
