I believe most distributions make Grub Version 2 their default
boot loader because, at least in theory, it handles the majority
of user's needs and because it is the newest boot loader.  I
used it for a short while, but quickly abandoned it and went back
to LILO due to problems I was having with it at that time.
Perhaps those problems have since been resolved, I don't know.
But I continue to see trouble reports against it, and that does
not encourage me.  Besides, LILO does everything I need it to do.

If you are building your own custom kernels, and if you are
using LILO, you may find these two web pages useful resources:
