Problem with lilo....lba32


I have just recently reinstalled RedHat 7.1, and am having a problem with Lilo. I was dual-booting Linux and Win98, each with a 10GB partition of a 20BG hard drive. I installed win98 first then linux (using lilo to pick which os to boot). I recall having to add something to lilo like 'lba32' to get it to boot both os's. Like an idiot, I didn't write down/print out /etc/lilo.conf before I wiped the hard drive. Does anyone have any ideas/hints?

its a global option, just put "lba32" (w/o quotes) in the top section of ure lilo.conf
