I disabled bootmagic so now i cant boot windows. I can boot linux because i have a slackware bootdisk. If i could boot into windows once i could fix the problem. How can i set lilo up to boot windows? which device should i set it to boot? hda, hda1? The windows partition is the first one.

thanks

hdx specifies the harddrive, hdax, points to the x partition on drive hda.

If windows is on the first partition, then it would be hda1.
