Beg, borrow, or steal a boot disk. Once you've booted, all you need is to
re-run lilo (you may need the -r option, man lilo for more)
At worst, download the Debian installation disk image. You don't have to
reinstall, just choose "Mount an existing root partition", "Activate an
existing swap partition", and "Make bootable" from the menu and things
