LILO written over, no working bootdisk
I have two partitions on my hard drive, and i recently reinstalled windows 98, and it apparently wrote over the MBR where i had LILO installed. Thus, I cannot access my linux partition at all, because my boot disk somehow isn't working.
Is there anyway for me to manage to get into my linux partition?
I am unaware if it is possible to access any files through windows.
I have tried to load linux via tomsrtbt (a group of standalone linux files that load on their own) but i still can't manage to load LILO again, because I don't have the lilo.conf or boot.b (i dont know what boot.b does either)

If you have your distro's CD, I'm pretty shure there is a kernel on the CD wich you can use to boot up.
