man lilo
man lilo.conf

I assume lilo resides in MBR?

Try to add something like this (after
having checked where your winDOHs lives)
to your /etc/lilo.conf:

other=/dev/hda1 #make this your actual win-partitions number

If you need to find out where win lives,
fdisk -l /dev/hda

add something like this to "/etc/lilo.conf" and run "lilo"
(assuming windows on /dev/hda3)

other = /dev/hda3
