I used Syslinux for several years to boot linux from DOS, and it
was fine for doing one thing.

My memory of Lilo is that it was no fun during the days of switching
from CHS to LBA addressing on disks. Some people swear by it, just not me.

Give me the Grub shell any day.

BTW you can make grub.cfg look much simpler, either by writing it
yourself (there's not much to it), or doing what I do: postprocessing
it. I translate UUIDs to LABELs, and prune out some stuff I know I
don't need. It makes it less of a shock when you press "E" on an entry.
