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.

Thanks.
