This is most likely because your aborted install changed the active
boot partition on your hard drive. Until you are ready to try
installing Linux again, you can probably get things back to the way they
were by booting from the Windows startup floppy and going to MS-DOS
mode, then using FDISK to change the active partition back to the 
one with Windows on it. After that you should be able to cold boot
