BackTrack 3 help

i installed the BT 3 from a live cd dual booting it with my win Xp, installation was successful but i cannot boot into windows, the only OS i can boot into is BT, i have configured lilo to allow me dual boot and chose OS on start up but  seems not work.

this is the ERROR i get:

Warning: LBA32 addressing assumed
Reading boot sector from /dev/hda
Using MENU secondary loader
Calling map_insert_data

Unrecognized token "3" at or above line 16 in file '/etc/lilo.conf'

the synthax i use are:


boot = /dev/hda
prompt
timeout = 1200
default =Windows
#bitmap=/boot/splash.bmp
change-rules
reset
#vga = 769,771/773/792
vga = 769
image = /boot/vmlinuz
  root = current
  label = BackTrack 3

#Boot Windows
other = /dev/hda1
label = Windows

Please someone help me, i need to get somethings done in my Win Xp urgently.

thanks at your earliest assistance.
