Multiboot Problem with LILO


I have just installed Mandrake 10.

I have a problem to boot booth windows, it seems like LILO dosn't hide other windows partition.
This is how my system looks:

Part1-WindowsXP Pro
Part2-WindowsXP Media Center
Part3-Linux Swap
Part4-Linux EXT3
Part5-NTFS (logical partition)

part1 (FAT32) no OS

Part1(NTFS) no OS

If a hide (manually) i.e. Part2 and reboot then i can load Part1 with LILO, but if i reboot my system and try to load Part2 then it begins loading the start-screen of Part2 but the rest of OS is PART1. I have no problems loading Linux either way.

How can i make LILO to load one OS and hide the others.
I used to boot between Part1 and 2 with Powerquest Bootmagic( went well).
