then i deleted my linux partitions and i re-installed it
it works fine again now, but i can't launch win with lilo at boot sad.gif

You probably need to add windows back into your lilo.conf file. What partition/drive is your windows install on?

windows is installed on a fat32 partition on a C: drive, if that is your question huh.gif

But what partition is it in Linux ?

Use this command in Linux :

fdisk -l

Are there any partitons that say FAT 32, DOS, Win95 FAT, etc. listed ... if so what is the partition listed (ie /dev/hda1, /dev/hda2, etc.).

If the windows partiton is /dev/hda1 then add these lines to the bottom of your /etc/lil.conf file:

other=/dev/hda1
label=Windows

The run the command:

lilo

If there are no errors, reboot and you should be able to select Windows. If your windows partiton is other than /dev/hda1, substitute the correct partition in the other= line...
