Please check with the lilo doc, but I guess you installed lilo in
the boot sector of your primary partition, which seems to be a Win95
one, instead of installing into the root sector of the drive. Right?
So, only the boot sector is overwritten. AFAIK nothing else.
Check the man page, there is an uninstall option for lilo. Check
carefully, it might be able to install the original boot sector of your
Win95 partition, and you're up and alive again.
These are just ideas, and I can'tr verify at the moment, so I would like to
see someone second them.
