just use DOS/win9x fdisk to delete the partitions, then use "fdisk /mbr" to remove the lilo.

only the windows drive (c) shows up in fdisk, no other partitions to delete.

"delete non dos partition" (you need a fdisk from dos 7 or later, which means win95 or later) or search the web for delpart.exe which also does it.)

no, its not a partition of the main drive (which runs windows), its a seperate physical drive. win/dos just doesnt acknowledge its existence.

I've got exactly the same problem. They don't seem to be reading the question do they?

If win doesnt "see" the drive, it is a hardware problem. Did you try delpart?
