Ditto from me. I may get around to trying GRUB one day. But, since I have 
never once had any problem with any version of LILO, I am less likely to 
try GRUB.

IMHO, LILO is *not* bad, and GRUB is *not* good. They are equal and 
playing the field with different methods to do the same thing. Sure, if 
you do have some problem booting with LILO, try GRUB. As long as your 
system comes up, I see no difference at all...
