    Well, the thing that you have to love with GRUB is that it doesn't require to be pre-configured. It loads it config file at run time, and you can always switch to the command line mode to run any commands that you want, in order to debug or anything. That is what makes GRUB so great; its flexibility. It can also do more things than LILO can. If you look through the command reference, you'll see that you can do virtually anything with an out-of-the-box configuration. It also has support for file systems, so if you change your kernel or anything, you don't need to recompile the boot sector.
