Help! - Deleted boot option for Windows from LILO! - HOW DO I GET IT BACK?!

Knowing me, since this i'm such a "newb" ... i went in and wanted to change around how linux booted. I deleted the select for "NT" which is windows... and now i can't boot back into windows. NT is located on the hda1 partition, but when i go to "add" a new boot option, it just gives me the grub menu and it tells me that the "filesystem" is unknown. Thanks to anyone in advance for helping me to get back into windows!

can anyone help me? what do i need to add to lilo.conf?
This is what i have for windows in lilo.conf:
