Changing bootloaders...

I would like to change my bootloader from Grub to LILO because of LILO's command prompt, yet I have no idea how to do so. I'm using RedHat 7.2.

Any help is appreciated

Not sure of your reason for changing bootloaders, but to use LILO (assuming you have it installed) all you need to do is edit the file:

and type the command:

(do this as root).

Try the How-To's at for LILO specific options.

You may be able to find linuxconf easier to use to change the boot settings.
