    You can use the SuperGrub LiveCD to reinstall LILO:

    Hi !

    Easiest way is, download SuperGRUB CD, boot up from it and select 'Fix Linux Boot Loader (Lilo)' option from list.
    Or try booting up in Recuse mode using Mandriva installation CD/DVD and execute 'lilo' command. I dont use Lilo and not sure if it will work.

    :Edit: ozar is fast.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
