Change the  default=linux  line to  default=dos
Then run lilo -v to update the MBR.

Hi Nagen

The line

default linux

in your lilo.conf file as listed below should be

default=linux

To change the default OS for LILO change the line default=linux to read
default=dos

OR

If you prefer to use a name other than dos, (perhaps windows)
change the line lable=dos to lable=windows and the line default=linux to
default=windows

You will need to run /sbin/lilo -v to write the changes to your MBR

All of the above must be done as su or root.
