LILO about to be removed in Debian 6.0 "Squeeze"

William Pitcock explained [17] that due to some limitations (for example
in the size of supported kernels) the boot loader LILO [18] is about to
be removed from the upcoming release of Debian 6.0 "Squeeze". He
therefore asked users to test the replacement boot loader GRUB 2 [19].

   18 : http://packages.debian.org/lilo
   19 : http://packages.debian.org/grub-pc


GRUB version 2 cannot be accepted (because of security reasons) as long
as the PASSWORD command is ignored. Please inform the developers to use
GRUB version 1 instead, thanks!
