Get out a boot or rescue floppy or CD, and boot from that.  It's
simplest to fix the problem using a Linux boot/rescue floppy/CD; I'm not
sure how booting into Windows will help you solve the problem, since
Windows can't look at the Linux partitions.

Once you're booted via the floppy/CD, you can mount your harddisk
partitions and fix up the lilo problem.
