    I never could understand LiLO. I <3 my Grub. I even have memorized the simple line for booting Windows with it. Perhaps it has trouble automatically configuring itself. But I wouldn't know how to automate it.

    Code:
    title=Windows XP
    rootnoverify &#40;hd0,0&#41; # This should be wherever your Windows partition is located.

    chainloader +1
    But then, it's a matter of taste.

    That's strange, I have always preferred LiLO to GrUB, because it is just, better, for me, I think it is easier too

    I think lilo is easier too, the only reason I'm not using it, is that lilo requires you to run /sbin/lilo everytime you update your kernel, I got tired of it... Lilo feels a bit faster too.
