no !

syslinux is a goot thing, because you can modify the boot disk with dos.
this way is was able to replace the kernel (dos file "linux") with the
vmlinuz image from 2.0.30. i needed that to install linux on a computer
with a buslogic scsi controller (supported in 2.0.30, not in 2.0.29).

with lilo boot disk will maybe not have a dos format, and this way i
cannot do such things.
