Use attrib to remove the RHS attributes from boot.ini and then
just edit it.  I don't have one handy, but its pretty easy to
figure out.  I think its similar to lilo (i.e. give a tag and a
partition to boot from).  Your lilo.conf should be setup to boot
from the partition linux is installed in, but thats the usual
default.  The boot loader just points you to that partition and
lilo takes it from there.

God luck!
