What LILO have and What GRUB have?
can you give me some of them? Compare it.
You only need to install GRUB once (usually grub-install /dev/hdx), and after that, you'll only need to edit /boot/grub/grub.conf (or /boot/grub/menu.conf) every time you update your kernel.
LILO still gets the job done, but you have to run it every time you update your kernel.
I would choose GRUB myself, only because I'm a scatterbrain sometimes, and I'll keep forgetting to run LILO.
Also, GRUB and LILO both offer eye-candy in the way of graphics and color options (if you read the man pages/google for it), but again, I would still choose GRUB.
I'm using Gentoo right now, and Gentoo has some really pretty options you can add to it's 'genkernel' command that will make your bootloader all pretty and stuff.
They both get the job done, and the differences are slight.
