How can I remove GRUB and install LILO?

I've installed RedHat 9 on a testing PC. It used GRUB
as the boot loader. Can I replace it by LILO? Please
tell me the steps, thanks!

Welcome to,

Most people prefer Grub because it has more features. If you really want Lilo, all you have to do is create /etc/lilo.conf (see "man lilo.conf") and then run "/sbin/lilo -v". You can get some of the info for lilo.conf from /boot/grub/grub.conf.
