Concerning your LILO-Problem:

If you changed the Master Boot Record, you can do the following:

Escape Booting by pressing SHIFT in the right moment. You should see
something like "1FA" or "3FA" for example.
If you type the displayed number you choose the harddrive-partition
with the default OS. Type "F", if you wish to boot from Floppydisk.
If you "type "A", you'll get a list of all hd-partitions plus the
"F"-Option, something like "1234F". You can choose the OS by typing
the number of the corresponding partition.
So you can switch between the OSs just by typing "A1", "A2", "A3" or

I hope, this helps.
