It may be that you have to set the Windows partition active. Lilo
doesn't do this by default. If you are just dual booting with Debian (no
other OS's involved), it should suffice to just set it active once with
Win9X fdisk or whatever - and it will stay that way.
You can also configure Lilo to do it when you boot to windows. Check the
Lilo documentation for the correct syntax.
