Her's my lilo.conf (/dev/hda1 => win, /dev/hda3 => linux)

boot = /dev/hda
delay = 40
vga = normal
root = /dev/hda3
default = new

image = /boot/vmlinuz-2.2.14
	label = linux
image = /boot/bzImage-2.2.14
	label = new
other = /dev/hda1
	label = win
	table = /dev/hda

When lilo is printed, press CTRL and type "win" or "linux".
