lilo loader on floppy


I would like to create a floppy which allows to boot linux installed on harddisk (partition). I dont want to create any rescue disc or typical bootdisk. The purpose of such disk would be booting existing linux form other disk without presence of lilo on mbr of the HD. Is there any possibility to install lilo on mbr of the floppy (if it is present in floppies). And how can I do it?
Because I would like to hide linux for other users of my machine. I have windows installed as a "main" OS. And I dont want to have any indications of presence of linux on machine.

Well you can certainly make a GRUB boot floppy - see as for Lilo, I suppose it's posssible too, but I dont' use Lilo.
