Lilo and superblock of linux partition

i am using Slack 9.1
i have 3 partitions, ie. / , /boot and /swap.
I installed Lilo into superblock of the linux partition.
where did i actually install my Lilo?
/ or /boot?

which partition should mark as bootable so that i can boot my
PC using Lilo?

Please help.

Most likely the / partition. Do you have any other os's? I'm guessing that you have Windows since you didn't install to the MBR, so search ( ) for a guide on using the Windows bootloader to load Linux.
