You can use LILO conf switches like
map-drive = 0x80
to = 0x81
map-drive = 0x81
to = 0x80
in your Win boot section
In effect this fools WIndows into thinking its booting of Primary
Master when infact its booting off Primary Slave.
Please check the LILO docs before using this as its a long time
since my system was setup like this - it worked flawlessly for ages
including the usual Win95 reinstalls which now never overwrote the LILO
