Sorry to hear that Dan...
I'd be interested to have more details of your install so I can pass that onto
the other developers.
If you installed Lilo in the mbr it should have identified your Windows
partition. Was it a standard install on to one hard drive?
The only part I stumbled with on my first install was the graphical disk
partitioning utility...and that was mainly due to my semi ignorance and
familiarity with what kind of partiton is what with respect to primary,
logical, extended, etc. OTher than that it went fine...but then I never
install onto a drive I don't expect to wipe as a rule...that's just me.
