Unhappy Triboot system problems

My dad had me install ME, and Xp on different Hardrives, which makes a
multiboot menu come up at loading, instead upgrading ME.This boot loader
overrides LILO so I can't boot into linux. Any suggestions?

boot linux from a bootdisk, edit /etc/lilo.conf to allow for the windows OSs and then re-run /sbin/lilo
