Lilo and Grub


I use GRUB, but want to try out lilo. Can anyone tell me where to download lilo, how to install lilo, etc? Is there any way that I can have lilo on my system as well as grub?

Thx.

PS: I have lilo-22.3.4.tar.gz on my system now. How do I install it?

most distros will already have it, or it will be on your disk

to install it you need an /etc/lilo.conf files
and you need to run lilo

you can install grub in your master boot record
and lilo in your boot record, or the otherway around.
whichever you want.

They are both boot loaders, they boot operating systems. There is absolutely no reason to have more than one. Unless you have a good reason for doing so, then I can't see why you would want to change it.
