ugh... boot manager

Well I was using boot magic that comes with partition magic as my boot manager. I was just messing with the settings and set linux as my default os and the wait time or whatever it is to none. Now it goes straight to lilo without asking me. Now windows is in lilo, but when I choose to go to windows, it asks me to give it a command something or other. It gives an example of something like C:/windows/ but when I try to type that example in, it does nothing. Does anyone know what I have to do to get to windows 98? I'll die if I have to format everything just to get to windows, then repartition and everything, setup all my drivers again and all that crap. Someone please help

just re-install bootmagic with say a 5 second delay.
