Should I reinstall Grub?

I'm installing a new kernal (vers. 2.4.19) and the documentation says I will need to install a new version of lilo; however I'm using Grub. Do I need to reinstall grub? and if so, how do I do it?

I'm using Red Hat Linux 7.2, any help would be great, I've never done this before.

If i remember, you DO have to re-install grub again, or you could just make the switch to lilo, then once you have lilo installed, swtich back to Grub

Its just a suggestion...hehe

I've always noticed that Lilo is more universally adopted in many docs that I've read. Why use Grub anyways? (just curious)
