I don't know much about LILO (I use grub on a dual-boot system with
Windows), but when I reinstall Windows I have to put my restart the PC
with my FC1 CD in the drive and at the boot prompt I type "linux
rescue".  This goes through a basic rescue startup.  The rescue mounts
my Linux partition on /mnt/sysimage, so I have to chroot to that and
then I just type "grub-install /dev/hda" and it's back to normal.  Hope
this helps.
