Lilo troubles

I was previously running a linux(debian) and windows (microsoft windows XP) partitioned box. But my debian ran into some problems which I did not have the energy to try and fix, and I therefore did not use it. I then, everytime I started my computer, had to choose which drive to boot from because of Lilo(this lasted for quite a few months) and then today I used partition magic to delete my old linux partition to make some more room, and for some reaqson I did not think of Lilo. So now my computer will not start Windows, and it only goes to a page with L and 99 repeating on it. So I am asking if there is something that I could downlaod, and put on a floppy disk to delete Lilo so that I will be able to run my Windows OS, or at least be ab;le to reach it as I am now useing an old computer I found around the house. Thank you all for your help
