Lilo question for dual booting Slackware 32 and 64

Do I have to install a 64 bit lilo to dual boot 32 and 64 bit? or is 32 bit lilo already capable of doing this?

Hrmm, you could try installing the 64-bit and see if it will boot the 32-bit version of Slackware. I am guessing here, but maybe the documentation on lilo might offer some insight?

Yeah, I'm just at work now and it popped into my head as I was reading the forums.
