See if you have the utility liloconfig installed on your system. It practically walks you through it.
Before you run it, make sure you know what disk (if you have more than one) and what partition the Linux and W2k are each installed in, since you have to point lilo in the right direction for each.
Please post back with these details if you would like some more help.
