Hey macondo, I did everything you said to do and grub still exists AND is booting over lilo. WTF, I thought I uninstalled it?
The only thing that went bad with running /sbin/lilo is that I didn't have the debian.bmp bit-map file in my boot directory. However I had a sarge.bmp in my boot directory, so I edited my lilo.conf file to load that instead of the debian bmp and after I ran /sbin/lilo again it worked fine.
BUT GRUB IS STILL BOOTING MY SYSTEM!
Seriously, what else do I need to do to get lilo to boot instead of grub? I even looked at a grub uninstallation guide and it told me to just run /sbin/lilo and that would do it. Damn you evil bootloader!!!
