So you diddled with your master boot record huh? A good way to futz things
up is to use LILO followed by another program that tries to "fix" things.
The problem is that your second program will get awefully confused by LILO
and to punish you for straying from the Microsoft Path by making your 
computer unbootable.

To fix things, type "fdisk /MBR" from DOS, where MBR stands for master boot 
record. This will fix everything, or at least it did for me. Thank you Ryan
Davis for letting me know about this.            -Philip
