Support, Usability

Sorry to say but the choice just boild down to lilo for me. It has best 64bit support for my laptop, easy to configure (i very much dislike the grub approach to configuring, yes not a good idea to be messing with something you dont understand that can be damaging but why make it more complicated for people who don't use it a lot) its simple to draw a connection between /dev/hda1 and the partition /dev/hda1 theres no need to be learning new idea (philosophy) on how to adress the hard disk.

Grub may be well suited to obscure uses i.e. booting 100+ distro's on the same box but i just need to dual boot and upgrade kernel so lilo is suited more for me i feel. (I upgrade due to no correct acpi support on the 64bit HP nx6125 Crying )
