Bootloader - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Hy, I installed Mandrake over winXP. The XP installation is crashed, I want to install now w2k over it. How can I pass the LILO bootloader? If I run the W2k setup cd, after the first reboot of the install process I always get the LILO screen and I cannot go on with the w2k installation. What is the procedure to "switch off" LILO and to install w2k?? Or any other suggestions? thanks Thorsten...

    Boot in linux and use lilo -u to remove the boot loader.
    Make a boot floppy to reboot Linux afterthat. Or just add Windows
    to the list of OSes to boot.

    Did you install MDK over XP? (Of course it crashed) Or after?

    If you had Mandrake and XP dual booting and are installing W2k to the
    same partition XP without resizing just selecting XP should start W2k.

    Or boot from W2k CD and choose repair, recovery console, fixmbr,
    fixboot.
