IMHO, grub is very easy to use, since you install it once, and merely 
edit the config file to change it (unlike lilo). The down side is that 
the /boot/ partition containing the grub.conf (sym linked to this from 
/etc/) must remain available, or you lose all boot from grub. This 
really isn't too bad though.
