Angry LILO boot problems

I have windows xp and Mandrake linux installed in my PC. I reinstalled windows xp so whenever the reboots it enters to the windowsXP. The LILO boot prompt for linux is not shown. So how to get the LILO boot again without using a floppy or the linux CD. I neither have a floppy drive nor have the installation CD for MANDRAKE...

Can anyone help me with this.

You may be able to get the XP bootloader to boot Linux. If you have a cd writer you can make a bootable cd from a floppy image.
