Maybe you've missed the grub hint? :)

I recommend you first build the entire sys, then boot it with your current grub
loader, then install grub and configure it. I never tried to replace LILO with
Grub in the book.

We're not interested. We'll have a serious look at Grub once it's declared
stable (it's still alpha at the moment), and it may replace LILO if it's really

There is no programming language, no matter how structured,
that will prevent programmers from writing bad programs.
