fedora and other operating systems

ENV: PC with two hard disks
hard disk 1 : win98
hard disk 2 : mandrake 10.1
(partition table is written on hard disk1)
dual boot with lilo boot manager.

hard disk 2 has enough space to permit me to install Fedora core 3
the main issue is that i do not want to use grub boot loader/manger....

is there a way to force Fedora to keep accoiunt of the existing boot manager and automatically add it on the lilo.conf ......?

thanks in advance

At the end of the install, simply tell Fedora not to install the bootloader. Then manually edit the lilo.conf from your other distro with the kernel image, initrd and root of FC3, re-write lilo to the MBR.

Actually the bootloader option is at the beginning of the installation and not the end.
