For some reason after installing slackware 9.1 LILO does not boot at goes directly to Windows XP. I was wondering if anybody could help me to troubleshoot this problem.

A couple of reasons...

If your /boot partition is after the 1024th cylinder of the hardrive, it may not work. (However this is not the case with GRUB.) So, if this is the case, use your rescue floppy (if you have one... which you should!!!) and I recommend you install GRUB.

If LILO was installed on the MBR and something happened to it. For example: Reintalling Windows XP formats the MBR to make load it right away.
