LILO and Grub Quetion

Dear All

I was trying to install windows and Linux and Solaris

1- I followed This link to do my installation,,, what should I do if I want LILO or GRUB bootloader become default bootloader,,,because when I follow the link, Solaris bootloader becomes default one.

2- If I want to check where did I install bootloader for linux, (i.e is it on hda1 or hda2, etc), what command should I use? because I am not sure, where I installed it, on MBR ,or on /boot (in my case is hda2)

3- Can I use Grub boot loader instaed of LILO? If so, Is it same as LILO?

4- I read this on the net abou GRUB :
"Unfortunately, I have no experience with grub booting Solaris. If you do, please mail me! " and the link for that is :
