That's not true. With a dd command you can easily allow windows to control the booting:

1) write lilo to the boot sector of the linux partition (rather than the mbr)

2) while in linux:
dd if=/dev/hda2 of=/floppy/boot.lnx bs=1 count=512
(where hda2 is your linux partition, and /floppy is a mounted floppy)

3) copy the boot.lnx file in Windows in your C:\
directory and add the following line to boot.ini:

That should do it...
