How to change from grub boot loader to lilo boot loader

After installing the lilo rpm, you have to create a configuration file for lilo called /etc/lilo.conf and after doing that you need to write the configuration to the mbr by running lilo as root:

# /sbin/lilo -v

Here's an article that describes lilo configuration in more detail:

Be very careful when running lilo as an error in configuration could leave your system unbootable.
