How to fix lilo after intalling Windows

Hi. I have slackware one one partition with lilo. Today I've installed Windows 7 on another partition and now I have to fix lilo. How can I do that? Can I reinstall it from the slackdvd ? Thanks.

You have to boot from CD or USB. Then mount your / partition (say, under /mnt in the live system), chroot to /mnt, and run “/sbin/lilo -v”. Finally exit the chroot, umount /mnt, and reboot.
