Linux Lilo - Hide Linux Partitions from a Windows boot

How do I configure Lilo to:
hide Linux partitions from a Windows boot?
I have seen enough websites to see how to hide Windows partitions from Linux, but I have yet to see see how to hide the Linux partitions from Windows.
The reason is this:
Windows tries to read/understand/whatever the Linux partitions and take an age to do so. The read/understand/whatever occurs when loading programs also.

I can imagine that the configuration would be something like:
