Unhappy Install Hangs

I virus pooched my linux so instead of trying to recover I decided to do a clean install. But now the Install kicks out at about 65% with an abnormal shutdown message. I was using LILO to dual boot so Now I can't even get into My windows partition

Please Help!!

you could boot with windoze floopy and type
fdisk /mbr
that should let you back into windoze.
there isn't enough info to help you with the install problem (at least for me).
