switching from LILO to Grub

Hi All
I want to change LILO to GRUB
I am having RH9 and windows 98 also XP
I think redhat installs LILO and Grub but only activated one of them
I see in Linuxconf both of them
I want to do it in a professinal way

I have uninstalled LILO and removed it from MBR
backed up MBR Backed up the whole first partition
Installed grub
But I don't see the grub list at prompt
I think I am missing one step is to install it on MBR , whats the command & if something goes wrong is their a command to recover back to normal ??

1 hour later I have read the tutorial on how to install it to MBR but then should I see the menu.lst file or a grub prompt ? as I have installed it before on a floppy and when I boot I see a grub prompt

Sometime later
Works like magic
Its done ............ root (hd1,8) then setup (hd0)
et Voila O lala runs like a bullet
Thanks for your tutorial
