Re: Need lilo help - won't boot Win2k

I have a triple boot system with three drives:

* /dev/hdg - 200 GB SATA drive with Debian (root is /dev/hdg6)
lilo can boot my two Debian drives. When I try to boot into Win2k, a
couple of extended ASCII characters (symbols like "yen" and "cents") get
printed, but nothing else happens. Win2k doesn't boot.
Using fdisk, I've made sure that the 3 partitions on hde exist, hold the
files they're supposed to hold, and hde1 (which holds the actual MS OS)
is marked bootable.
The motherboard is an Abit NF7-S, and I'm using the sata_sil module, and
other than this, have had no problems with it. SATA on Linux has been
great. My BIOS is set to boot off of HDD-0. There's an option to boot
off the SATA drives though.
As a last note, I tried Grub, and it didn't boot Win2k either. When I
chose Win2k from the Grub menu, I was dumped into the Grub bash-like
console and didn't go any further (I'm reasonably experienced with lilo,
but a Grub newbie).
My lilo.conf follows, everything looks fine with it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
What was the drive configuration when you _installed_ w2k?
