Hmm. Looks like something (the virus, windows95 during a reinstall or perhaps
your anti-virus software) overwrote your master boot record.

Here's what should work:
- Get or remake the Debian boot disk (first disk of the 6-set)
- Boot with that disk. On the lilo prompt, press tab and say
Linux root=/dev/hda4 ro
(presuming /dev/hda4 == 4th partition on first drive) is your Linux
- Linux should boot more or less normal now. Log in, and rerun "lilo".
Hope this helps,
