Nope, the file your looking for is /etc/lilo.conf, and thats gone to the big bit bucket in the sky now....along with the lilo binary that used to reside in /sbin - you can recover your windows bootloader by using the fdisk/mbr option with a win98 boot floppy or you can boot the winXP disk, go into the recovery console and do "fixmbr", personaly I'd go the XP option as the win98 bootloader probably won't be able to boot XP.
