Re: Which Boot Manager?

I don't understand why anyone using Linux would resort to 3rd party
proprietary software to manage their boot-up. LILO will allow for as
many different OS boots as you are able to make partitions for. If you
have some beef with LILO, then there is always grub.

Personally I've always been well served by LILO and feel it is an
extremely useful boot up manager. 

Take a look at man lilo, and you'll see what I mean.
