Partition entry not found when installing LILO

I screwed up my MBR after formatted my Windows XP partition and replacing it over with Ubuntu. I currently have my Windows 7 partition, 2 NTFS partittions, and a Slackware 14.0 partition.

Here's my lilo.conf:
boot = /dev/sda
bitmap = /boot/slack.bmp
bmp-colors = 255,0,255,0,255,0
bmp-table = 60,6,1,16
bmp-timer = 65,27,0,255

image = /boot/vmlinuz
root = /dev/sda1
label = Linux

other = /dev/sda6
label = Windows
table = /dev/sda
I get "FATAL: partition entry not found"

EDIT: This appears to be an issue in Windows 7. Nevermind.

Could you give a few more details?
What exactly is the problem? Is it not displaying all the options, or is it not booting one of the OS's properly?

Also, could you tell which partition is which?
