lilo boot

taking the queue... i wanted to ask one more thing...
i know its a bit off topic, but quite relevant..

on a computer, i had both win/linux dual boot using lilo. now when i
reinstall win, the MBR gets over-written, and so the dual boot option is now
unavailable.. ofcourse i had a boot floppy for rescue.. but isnt there any
app in dos which can atleast copy a minimal lilo , wherein, atleast we could
give a "root=/boot/KERNEL" etc... because, otherwise , without a boot
floppy, its a chicken and egg problem. you need lilo for linux, and linux
for lilo. !!
