Oh yeah!

Only if you never forget to run lilo after kernel update or other boot
config change, and never make a mistake in lilo.conf before running
Lilo.

The former happens automatically, courtesy of YaST, the latter - well,
if you make mistakes and run 'lilo', you'll find out about it :-)

Surprisingly (or perhaps not), the comparison left out a very key
difference. Grub supports multi-boot, lilo does not, which makes
booting xen a little more hassle with lilo.
