Tried to dual boot along with Windows 98 which was already on my laptop. Bootmaster (Partition Master 6.0) worked fine on first attempt and made sure didn't load LILO into Master boot space. HGowever had to redo the install of Linux and 2nd time around??? Seams to have loaded the LILO into the master boot file or space, because now i get LIL and Linux from power-on. When I am done messing around with Linux for my class, is my system able to recover and reload MS Windows-98?

Yeah, if you have your windows on another partition, to get rid of lilo, just type fdisk /MBR
this will wipe out lilo on your machine and when you boot into windows next time it will overwrite to it.
