I'm oversimplifying here to avoid writing a long, technical article on the inner workings of LILO. If you really want to know how LILO works, it comes with very complete technical documentation, and you will find the absolutely correct answers there. However, if you just want to get Linux and Windows 95 to co-exist, this article should be sufficient. Geeks who can find my logical contractions should pat themselves on the back and skip to the next article.
