"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you still have the Linux partition, boot with boot disk, and type at the "boot:" prompt:
mount root=/dev/hda1
if you have root partition on first partition, or
mount root=/dev/hda2
if you have root partition on second partition, and so on (hdb1, hdb2, ... if you have diferent phisical disks).
After booting, login as root and type "lilo" command. This reinstall your LILO.
