What are the disadvantages of lilo? (apart from not being supported
by YaST)


1) lilo *is* supported by YaST, just not default (at least in 11.1)

Uh, no - if you change the bootloader to lilo in 11.1, you are told that
lilo is no longer supported = you're on your own.

2) lilo don't have the boot editor. It's very usefull for advanced
users when changing some hardware and the computer don't boot anymore.

I consider myself an advanced user, but I have no idea what the "boot
editor" is - is it a special grub feature? Anyway, I'm sure it's a
disadvantage not to have it, I just haven't been hit by it yet.
