I'm not a boot-loader expert, but CentOS uses grub and the first thing
I notice about the attached article is that it talks about LILO. From
what I've gathered LILO is a different animal than grub, so as far as
the documentation is specific to lilo processes, I'd say no it wouldn't
be correct for CentOS. 

However since the 'li' part of lilo stands for linux, then it may be a
good general reference. But some of those more expert in the
differences two will probably chime in at some point.
