I had sugested this several months ago, and someone (I can't remember who)
really liked this idea:

- Remove bin86 & lilo from Chapter 6.
- On chapter 8, add a section called "compiling a boot loader" informing the
reader about lilo and grub and having them select one or the other.
- Add two sections: lilo, and grub.
- Under the "lilo" section, place bin86, nasm, and lilo for compilation and
instructions on how to set it up.
- Under the "grub" section, add instructions for building grub, configuring
it, and installing it.

That way readers can make up their own mind and you avoid the war
