Resetting up LILO

I had Mandrake 9.2 dual booting happily with Server2k. I wound up having to reformat and reinstall Server. Now I can only boot to Windows, and don't have the LILO bootloader anymore.

Is there a way to get it back without having to go through a full reinstall of linux?

Windows is on the primary master, and Mandrake is in 3 partitions (swap, root, and something else) on the primary slave.

Choices are, boot from MDK install cd, let it go as far as reinstalling the bootloader and then stopping the install, or
put in boot floppy or install cd, type in linux rescue and then reinstall your bootloader.
