    Re:lilo not in mbr?

    run fdisk /dev/hda and then press a to toggle the bootable partition, from here select 1, then press w to save changes and exit fdisk. in my bootable partition it is set to active and i have never had ms windows on this drive so i am guessing it is needed.
    here is my print out:
    Code:
    [root@bugs ~]fdisk /dev/hde
    
    The number of cylinders for this disk is set to 4865.
    There is nothing wrong with that, but this is larger than 1024,
    and could in certain setups cause problems with:
    1) software that runs at boot time (e.g., old versions of LILO)
    2) booting and partitioning software from other OSs
       (e.g., DOS FDISK, OS/2 FDISK)

    You can always just make a manual entry for Windows on your lilo.conf (I noticed you don't have one at the moment....)

    Mine looks like this:

    Code:
    other = /dev/hda1
      label = WindowsXP
      table = /dev/hda
    # DOS bootable partition config ends
    # Linux bootable partition config begins
    image = /boot/vmlinuz
      root = /dev/hda5
      label = Linux
      read-only
    # Linux bootable partition config ends
    Then, rerun /sbin/lilo.
