I agree about LILO. They actually have 2 mode to install: 1) to MBR 2)
to Linux partition. I alwais use second mode and even don't understand
why they still uses this 1) mode and even install it by default. You
have a prompt in any distribution setup. Just selet second.Actually, in
mode 1) you don't touch MBR and if something wrong you can alwais boot
DOS floppy and make command "fdisk /MBR".
