Lilo will overwrite the MBR of hda, that is all. If you want to restore it
to its original msdos format, then boot a msdos floppy and run either
FDISK/MBR C: or FDISK\MBR C:
This will remove any reference to Linux from the MBR
Your lilo.conf should contain something like this:
You can fill in the rest for yourself. Once you can boot the two systems;
then you could put that spare disk back (possibly as the slave on ide2).
Then re-partition it, and see if it is really faulty, by building another
LFS system on it.
