Hello, lilo config with windows 7

I need some help with configuring lilo on my new pc.
I have been using slackware for 2 years now, tried alot of distributions but slackware for me stuck in the end.
AlthoughI am quite familiar with it, I have a , kinda newbie problem. On my new pc , in order to play some game, I have installed windows 7, but I still want my main OS to be Slackware, the problem is, that I never dual-booted with windows, only using grub, and everything there was configured automatically.
So, I actually want to install Slackware as soon as possible, as soon as I get this info, can some1 help me ?
(btw, im not sure if from slackware configures automatically lilo and adds windows 7 , any info would help me )

Lilo usually adds any Windows partition to lilo.conf during installation.
