Well, that's the problem. I don't get a LILO prompt. I have to use
the CD1 to load Linux. I choose install and later on I ask it to load
the installed system.

Booting with the Windows install disk, and doing FDISK /MBR lets me
load Windows again, but no SuSE.

I think I should install LILO on the Linux partition and not the MBR.
I will try and see what happens.
