LILO: LILO lost upon booting.

Hi all.

Got a problem. My LILO did not appear while booting. Actually I got 3 OSes; Mandrake, RedHat & WinXP. While I try to configure the RedHat partition (to boot into RedHat) from my Mandrake, it give me a problem. No LILO.

How come I want to get back my LILO, man?

You can use the mandrake CD 1 to solve this cause I use Mandrake 9. Boot with the CD and enter rescue mode. There u will get an option to rewrite LILO I suppose. U need to have an idea of the partition names in linux format i.e. hda, hdc, etc.
