Well, I am working on this base of assumptions... 1. windows was your first OS on this machine.  2. It has an ide hard drive.  3. You have installed lilo/linux under the 1024th sector. (otherwise you would have noted having a LI instead of a LILO...)  4. that you don't know how to mount your cdrom...(not a bad thing, I didn't for the longest time...)

The first thing that I would check is to see if your /etc/lilo.conf is configured correctly.  If you want, you can use this one...(this is for my ide laptop)

boot=/dev/hda
vga=normal
read-only
prompt
timeout=100

image = /boot/vmlinuz
root = /dev/hda2
label = Linux

other = /dev/hda1
label = Win
table = /dev/hda

After this is typed in place of the current lilo.conf save and exit vi and then type in lilo and hit enter. (you have to rerun lilo to confirm that it works without errors.  

Try this first, it might help, or it might not, but let me know either way.
