Sure, instead it'll freeze at stage 1.5.  Hardly an improvement.

But how often does that happen?  I've never seen it myself.

I have, unfortunately. I have a machine that just doesn't wanna work from a hard drive boot - but it works fine from CD or floppy. Both LILO and Grub fail.

- You don't have to rerun grub every time you changed the config file
Except that you do, unless you believe in symlinks for your kernels..

Since when?  I don't symlink my kernel and I don't rerun grub every
time I upgrade my kernel, and yet it Just Works(tm).
I don't understand that - unless your different kernel versions are all using the same filename.
