I just installed Mandrake 9.1 without LiLo thinking for some reason that BootMagic 8.0 would recognize it, but it didn't for some reason. How do I get into Linux? Can I install LiLo after this install? Thanks!!

You sure can. You need to install the lilo package (most likely accesable through the drakeconf package management). After the install, you need to verify where your kernel is, chances are there is a symlink for /boot/vmlinuz that points to the correct kernel. You need to edit /etc/lilo.conf so that it points to that kernel (for more info, check out the lilo manpage). After you have edited and saved the file, you can issue the command "lilo -v" and it will install lilo into your MBR.
