    If that didn't do anything, the only conclusion that we are left with is, there is something wrong with the lilo package on that Slackware cd.
    You could try installing lilo from a premade slackware bootdisk from www.bootdisk.com
    Or you could download another Slackware ISO and install LiLo from that.

    Re:

    Where are you installing LILO?? The MBR or 1st partition for linux? What do your partitions look like? Also, you said this was a dual boot machine. You could try LOADLIN.exe.

    Same thing happened to me when i tried to install lilo to the MBR . if you have a win 98 boot disk you can run the windows fdisk to clear out the MBR
    Code:
    fdisk /MBR
