copy and configure lilo ??

Hi,
What is the command to save a copy for the lilo at master boot record ?? Or .. can it be configured ... means access to MBR and configure it ( copy out and restore back )...
Just in case if there are changes when I setup again my windows where windows setup will rewrite the MBR.

If you can't access your unix boot froma LINUX-boot disk mount your HD and run lilo again. This will write you r configuration back on the MBR.

NO, rbr this may or may not install lilo on MBR.
Depends on lilo.conf's  install keyword.
