Linux as default OS at boot

How can I make LILO automatically boot up linux at startup. I don't have MS Windows on my computer but for some reason the boot loader gives "Windows" as an option at start up to boot in to. I have two partitions but one is a swap linux. I'm using Slackware 10.1 .

Your /etc/lilo.conf file can be set up however you want.
You can change the default and the timeout.
You can see what was labeled as a Windows partition.
"man lilo.conf" will give you some info on the file.
