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

You need to update the mapping when you change files.


You mean type 'lilo' and hit enter? Well, if it's only about those five
keystrokes, it's not much of a disadvantage :-)

As long as you remember it... :-)

IIRC SuSE was pretty good at notifying you that you needed to do that
when the config files changed. I have found LILO to be much easier to
deal with than GRUB.
