Well, since I'm obviously not a smart user I can continue to ask the
stupid questions :-)

What is the recommended procedure for changing from e.g. lilo to grub?
Since you plan to drop lilo post-lenny, I guess this will be a quite
common question during the lifetime of lenny.  Users will notice that
lilo is being deprecated and wonder how to switch. Maybe something to
document in either lilo or grub? or both.

Why, the rich people have really got it all together
