Linux / Windows 98 Boot problems

I've completed installation of Linux Mandrake  6.5. I wanted the dual boot so for LILO I selected "first sector of boot partition.  

but, on reboot i go straight into windows 98...

If I use the boot disk - then I get a page of 10's....

as in:

10 10 10 10 10 etc.

Now, i am not any kind of linux know anything...   but i hink I did everything right - I really did follow the directions(my mom would be so proud!)  

So what happened?

Thanks for your help!

It means you did not install LILO on master boot record
Why don't you try installing loadlin? That will boot you into linux from windows. It's all over the web, and I has a pretty good readme. If you have problems setting it up,post here.
