Heh heh, kinda of a regression, don't you think? There are various other 
boot loaders, like Gag, Burg, EasyBcd (or something like that which 
works with Vista/Wins7) but..... you can also use grub-l or grub2 as a 
'primary' boot loader too and set all OS boots to their own partition so 
you can "forgot to rerun it if you changed your kernel", and in its 
'native' language too so it boots directly, except for windows, which it 

Anyway, whatever works and whatever you are comfortable with; but I'd be 
surprised if lilo works on the newer OS/disk formats.
