I find it easy just to make a bootdisk when installing Linux. That way when I have to reinstall Windows. I just boot to the floppy, then log in as root and type lilo. Then boot loader is installed again and I am back to where I started.

If you are using Slackware and your Slackware install is on the second partition. Boot to the first CD and at the prompt type "bare.i root=/dev/hda2 noinitrd ro". Then log in as root and type lilo. I am not sure about any of the other distributions.
