Mandrake boot options GRUB and LILO question

Just a quick question:

Why are there three choices to boot Mandrake in either GRUB or LILO?

- linux
- linux_vmlinuz
- linux Enterprise

Which one should be used for regular daily usage? Does it make a difference?

The three choices will either be three different kernels or three different sets of boot time options or both. I can't say which is best without seeing your lilo.conf file.
