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?

And updating lilo.conf. Which does not work automatically any more
in 11.1, at least not in my installation.

I'm old (fashioned), I've never let YaST do anything to my lilo.conf
except for the initial install. I've also rarely had reason to change
anything in lilo.conf once I've put a server or a desktop PC into
production. On test-rigs, I edit /etc/lilo.conf+/etc/sysconfig/kernel
myself, run mkinitrd and lilo myself.
