"More sense on a PC" ? Duh ! Maybe for a "Win95" user.
Anyhow, the problems with "I've installed Micro$oft Windoze 95 on my
computer and can't boot Linux anymore" is just due to the fact that
M$ just assumes that anyone use their piece of crap and just baldly
recreates the MBR.
And LILO is not less safe than LOADLIN. It can causes problem if you
configure it badly. And LOADLIN can have problem if the DOS/WIN
drives are defragmented.
