Installing Lilo with Slackware

I'm downloading Slackware 9.1 right now and have one question about Slackware and installation. When you install, do you have to install Lilo with it? I've been comfortable with Grub (when I installed RH9), and will Lilo detect the current RH9 installation? Forgive me if I sound stupid, I'm just a n00b.

For the first time ever, yesterday, I installed a slim Slack on a small drive I had, just so I could look at files I was discussing, to be sure about placement and what the comments were in config files, etc. Okay, okay, I just wanted to play! But, anyways, Grub and Lilo are both choices whenyou intall and you get to pick which. Givvvvvrrrr!

BTW, Opera 7.5 FLIES on Slack!(seemed faster to install than chasing down the depends for Mozilla 1.anythingabove4)
