    In WiNdOzE, boot and then use command fdisk /mbr. Should be either in path
    or in directory %winroot%\command\ (where %winroot% usually is c:\windows).

    Then post lilo.conf here and let's have a look at it.

    Hello, thanks for your help, doing so didn't work but another fdisk
    function solved everything: it was just to select the windows partition
    as bootable. somehow this had been changed. Now windows boots but since
    I also did fdisk /mbr, lilo got disinstalled and I can only boot linux
    via a rescue floppy and the cdrom. The problem is that my cdrom is hda
    and my hd is hdc and Yast refuses to install lilo on something else than
    hda or sda. I think I'm just going to switch the cables, it's the easiest.
    bye,
    Jacques Charroy
