You need to set lilo up correctly to be able to dual boot.

First you need to have windows on the first partition, sound like you've already done that.

Second: When you install Linux have it on a seperate partition. In your lilo.conf file make sure that the boot loader is pointing to hda or hda1, can't quite remember.
Check out google for links to help you with getting lilo.conf correct.

By the sounds of things your very close to getting it up and running.

Hope this helps. Smilie
