The problem is not with LILO but with Win95.  Exactly what the trouble is
I'm not sure, but if I allow Win95 to try to boot itself it will lock up,
if I remember right with a message saying it can't locate somehting and a
prompt like this:


with what purpose I can't remember.  I have my linux partition designated
as the active one (via linux fdisk).  I don't remember if I ever get
prompted by LILO on those Win95 reboots or not, it's been ages since I had
to boot Win95, and I think I will reclaim the 800 megs it's taking on my
disk as soon as I figure out how to conveniently make use of a second
partition of that size.
