LILO stands for LInux LOader, and is the older, more tried-and-true bootloader. GNU GRUB (GRand Unified Bootloader) is newer, and can be made more eye-pleasing and more customizable than LILO.
With GRUB after changing the grub.conf file, you don't have to do anything else. With LILO you have to run "/sbin/lilo" as superuser after making any changes to the lilo.conf file as the MBR is not updated automagically as it is with GRUB.
