You can have both installed at a time. You can put lilo on /dev/hda1
and then grub on /dev/hdb, and then the FreeBSD loader in /dev/hdb2.
That way, you have a really weird setup were lilo can boot grub which
in turn which boot the FreeBSD loader, which could be setup to reload
lilo, just for fun. %0]

That is to say, they conflicts only when the system admin overwrite
one's bootsector with the other's, which is the same thing as doing mv
/bin/rm /bin/ls.
