Problem with lilo.conf


Ok, I want my default boot to be Windows and I set it up that way via GUI. Every time I tryed doing that it froze. So than I read that you can change /etc/lilo.conf I did that, and than I tryed executing it with /sbin/lilo and I got the following error:
Quote:
Fatal: Filesystem would be destroyed by LILO boot sector: /dev/hda1
Any help would be appreciated.

BTW: Here is how my lilo.conf looks:
Code:
# File generated by DrakX/drakboot
# WARNING: do not forget to run lilo after modifying this file

boot=/dev/hda1
map=/boot/map
default="windows"
keytable=/boot/us.klt
prompt
nowarn
timeout=150
message=/boot/message
menu-scheme=wb:bw:wb:bw
image=/boot/vmlinuz
	label="linux"
	root=/dev/hda5
	initrd=/boot/initrd.img
	append="devfs=mount acpi=ht resume=/dev/hda8"
	read-only
other=/dev/hda1
	label="windows"
	table=/dev/hda
Thank You,
Beeg
