Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the Windows has to be on
hda (afaik this is a limitation of Windows, not of LILO).

Below is my GRUB entry (I'm not sure if it's all necessary, but it works
for me). I'm sure some kind soul will post the corresponding lines for

title           Windows 2000
map             (hd0) (hd1)
map             (hd1) (hd0)
rootnoverify    (hd1,0)
