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.

What do you mean by multi-boot?
