if you just wiped it from the MBR, it's easy to reinstall:  "/sbin/lilo".  If
you wiped LILO completely off your hard drive, you can simply get the source
or a precompiled package and install it.

1. Newbie: Help with LILO

I upgraded the Windows partition of a dual-boot system from Win95 to
Win2K by reformatting the windows partition and installing Win2K from
scratch.  Now I can't seem to boot into Linux because the LILO prompt
never comes up.

I am told I need to do something with LILO to refresh the boot record,
but I am unsure as to how to go about it.  Please help.
