No. LILO is only designed to LOad LInux, or to chainload to a
bootloader that understands another operating system. Only GRUB (and
any other Multiboot loaders out there) can load GNU Mach and the Hurd.

Because the partition type tells people what kind of filesystem there
is. Currently, we use Linux EXT2FS (partition type 83, described as
`Linux'), and BSD UFS (which has several different types).
When there is a GNU FS, then we'll probably use the code that was
reserved for `GNU Hurd'.
