Yep. That was my mistake; I installed lilo on mbr and later when I
installed netbsd's bootloader there it replaced lilo, naturally! Of
course then there's no way netbsd could boot the linux partition,
since there wasn't any bootloader code on the first sector. I
problably could of messed a bit with linux' bootsect code, but hey..

A big thanks to all who replied!
