Maybe because nobody really uses it anymore ?

Well, for the record, I have to.
Grub doesn't work on my system at all.
(openSUSE 11.1 32bit on x86_64 hardware w/ 2 750GB disks.)

openSUSE 11.1 installation lead to an unbootable system, and also
subsequent manual installation could not bring it to work. (And
yes, I'm fairy knowledgable about x86 boot management. When I
started to use Linux, ca. 0.99.4, one had to.)
Dunno if Grub2 would have worked, lilo did it without any problems
and was at least still on SUSE's distribution DVD, although not
supported by SuSEconfig.

At first this meant that I had to take a bit more care during
kernel updates, no really big deal. Then kernel updates made
impossible my usage of VMware Server 1 -- after that I stopped
applying kernel updates at all...
