LILO bad, GRUB good

I was under the impression that the lilo boot record contained the physical
location of the kernel (ie block x).  I'm guessing when you moved the kernel
it just relocated the directory entry and the kernel itself was still in the
same location on the disk.

Oh and by the way when I move my /boot/lfskernel elsewhere lilo still boots
that kernel just fine. Could be that when you move it, it still sits on the
same inode?
