I used lilo when I first started using Linux, Mandrake 9.1 days. When I
started with Gentoo, I switched to grub. I can't even imagine being
without grub. I know lilo has some strong points and is maintained but
I still prefer grub. I also read that a new grub is in the pipe too.
Supposed to be much better. That's the rumor anyway.
