This is odd, I switched away from lilo when I was dual booting two Linux
OS's.  The things you are talking about being good are the reasons I
switched.  lol

I been using grub, legacy, for a long time and I have no complaints
about it.  For me, it works better than lilo ever did.  The new grub may
change things tho.  May being the key word.
