Lilo or Grub for me?


Well back in 2001 I was messing around with Linux a little I was duel booting I used Lilo at one point and then grub I cant remember which one I liked better or even how I changed from one to the other. Is it easy to go from lilo to grub or grub to lilo? Also is grub2 stable enough to use fully yet or should some one learning still stick with the original?

Thanks,
Kyle

For dual-booting, I would stick with Grub. The only reason I would use Lilo these days is if it came with my chosen distro.

I don't think GRUB-II has been released, but GRUB-.97 works fine. On reason to stay with GRUB is that more people are familiar with it an can give better help.
My site has an article on booting which might be useful--follow the link below.

Thank you for the replies. I was thinking I should download grub and install it I was leaning more towards grub because I think thats what I ended up linking better.

Thank you,
Kyle
