it would help to have more information... can you post your full lilo.conf and drive map ( run ' df -hT ' or something)?

once you make changes to lilo.. you have to run it to make those changes with usually command like this:

/sbin/lilo

Itsounds less like a lilo problem and more like a windows boot problem since it gives you a prompt but no action.
