In short terms:
The advantage of GRUB is, that there is no special 
need of reinstallation. GRUB can simple read your
linux kernel from harddisk. So if you rebuild a
kernel or update one, and it has the same path
name and name, simple reboot the machine. Otherwise
simple edit /boot/grub/menu.lst (or where your
config file is located, on some distributions also

You never have to start a program (grub) as under
LILO it was necessary.

The only impartant thing: remove the /sbin/lilo tool
to to call it per accident. Otherwise GRUB is over-
written by this. My prefered solution:

- rename `/sbin/lilo' to `/sbin/lilo.ORIG'.
- make a script called `/sbin/lilo' with the

        echo "LILO not supported on this system, use GRUB"
        exit 0

  With this script also the kernel installation calling
  LILO will not fail.

With friendly regards
