Removing LILO, unbinding harddisks

right now, I have Win98 in hda, Debian in hdb, and LILO in hda.
The other day I removed the hdb drive because I needed an extra IDE slot, and evrything collapsed, because the 2 drives seem to be bound through LILO.
I was wondering, is there a way to just remove LILO without screwing everything ? :P

if you can boot windows from a floppy, type " fdisk /mbr "
that will fix your boot-sector.
