Linux bootloader 'lilo' is normally installed in the 'master boot record' (mbr).  There is an undocumentd command line option for the dos fdisk to reinstall the dos bootloader.

1) Boot on a recovery disk make from your original DOS version with fdisk on the floppy.

2) type 'fdisk /mbr'

that reinstalls the normal dos bootloader

yes that answer is correct but it will kill all of your sys loaders (e.g. if you have NT 98 or Dos).
To repare that boot form a floppy disk and run 'sys c:'  of the OS you want.
