hmm... I really think you posted in the wrong forum you could've posted this in Linux General or Linux Newbie..... you'll get better replies that way, its good that i happen to be browsing this forum... anyway...

You can use your Linux installation CD in rescue mode to boot to Linux and reinstall Lilo there...

You can also install a newer version if you like, it will just overwrite your current Linux...

Its your choice...
