LILO, SBOOTMGR errors- windows will not boot

Two distinct Hard drives, Lilo installed on the first along with linux.

Linux boots through Lilo without difficulty.

If I unplug the primary hard drive, I can load Windows without problems.

If I use LILO to try to boot windows, it says "booting windows"... and then hangs.

If I use the SBOOTMGR boot disk, it takes me straight to the LILO prompt, no matter which Hard drive i choose to boot from.

I used the automatic configuration script for Lilo, and am working with a standard intel-type PC.

any suggestions?

Can you post your /etc/lilo.conf?
