lilo is still there. Its just not available as a choice in the install.
We build all of our servers using kickstart (automated version of the
install) and there lilo can be specified as a boot loader.

I can't choose LILO as boot loader anymore in the install process? And
what is the
advantages in GRUP vs. LILO that are so great that LILO has been deleted
One big disadvantages when forced to use GRUB is that it is a hassle to
disks in a RAID1 bootable.
and RAID1 seems pretty useless when it is the only bootable disk that
can someone come up with a nice one-liner that will make GRUB "global"
like LILO is
out-of-the-box ? or is ther a parameter you can give?
I don't know about you but when one of my disks fails I really don't
need too many
new check marks to worry about on my to do list.
