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.
