lilo can be installed as the MBR, but in debian it isnt. Debian has a
package called mbr. Lilo depends on it. This little Program will be
installed into the master boot record of the system by liloconfig. The
PAckage mbr enables you to select the partition to boot from. This is a
small subset of the functionality lilo offers, but it is easier for
beginners. Read /usr/doc/mbr/README.
