I have Slack 9.1 (2.6.7 kernel) with XP dual boot. I
had to re-install XP and Lilo has been overwritten. So
it just boots XP and does not give me LILO.

XP is in /dev/hda1 and Slack is in /dev/hda2. How can
I get my LILO prompt back without re-installing Slack?

I already booted from the CD (I don't have a floopy)
and did /sbin/lilo. It gives me "Partition 2 on
/dev/hda is not marked active.
Added DOS*
Added Linux"

I guess I need to move the "*" from DOS to Linux.
