First: Turn off your caps lock. It's not polite to shout or scream...

All you have to do is create a file /etc/lilo.conf with the necessary information and run /sbin/lilo as root user.

Why do you want to switch to Lilo? If you have a working boot loader configuration, there is no need to change it. You will not have any additional features by using Lilo.

khkremer, he wont have to create any file. Redhat automatically creates a conf file for lilo even if you select grub as the default boot loader. All he has to do is execute the command "lilo". However I am in complete agreement with you re wanting to use lilo over grub. Not only will he have no additional features by using lilo, he will actually have less than he has at the moment. Majority advice - stick with grub.
