/etc/lilo.conf (do I make from scratch)

I have been booting my redhat from boot disk for about a month. Initially when I installed grub at my first installation of redhat, it was not able to boot windows xp. So I reinstalled windows(I probably could have just fixed my windows boot loader?) And then reinstalled redhat without a boot loader.

I am feeling brave, I would like to try lilo this time, and make it work. Do I need to make my /etc/lilo.conf file from scratch, then run the command lilo. Is that the way I am sopposed to go about this?

That should work. Try installing to a floppy for testing.
