Edit /etc/lilo.conf in there you will see a line that sais default=linux
change that to your windows to make it boot up that by default.  Or in
there should be a time out, you can up that time.  

If you want to get partition magic back in the MBR, make the partition
magic rescue disks, in there is a menu for restoring the bootloader.
