grub.org has a lot of documentation... if you want to use grub, I would do away with lilo and go grub only.... I also recommend installing on the MBR, which is also covered in the docs @ grub.org

here's the docs from gentoo.... ignore everything except the part right after installing grub, there's a section about adding entries to grub.... the only thing that may be different is that grub.conf may be in a different place, but I doubt it.
