Problem with Norton ghost

Well I have one problem…
I have installed dual boot (Win XP and Mandrake 10.0) and I am using BootMagic as boot loader.
When I make backup of my Mandrake partition with Norton Ghost and when I tried to restore it, I can’t boot Mandrake because BootMagic can’t find Lilo bootloader?
And when I show to Boot Magic where is ext3 Mandrake partition still nothing happened? Somewhere I lose Mandrake Lilo loader!! And when I make upgrade of installation same problem stays!! How to solve this problem and if I can’t do it with Nghost is there any other software same like him to do it?

Can you boot into linux in any way or do you only have access to windows atm?

You can reinstall lilo from linux easy by issuing the command "lilo" as root.
