you could add the following lines to the end of your /etc/lilo.conf
other = /dev/hda1
table = /dev/hda
label = dos
You would want to make sure that you had a reasonable timeout or

As you can see there are a few things you'll want to know about
lilo before you start messing around. Look at the documentation
