I also like that one grub.conf file can chain to another one. On systems that have more than one
distro (or version of a distro) installed, you can have the first GRUB on /dev/hda, and that one's
grub.conf can have a menu option to chain to the second GRUB on (say) /dev/hda2, which has its
own grub.conf. This way, as you upgrade the kernel on the second one, you keep the second
grub.conf up-to-date; you don't have to try to merge multiple grub.conf's together.
With LILO it's update distro #2, boot into distro #1, update the LILO config. to match (now WHAT
was that filename again? mount the other root read-only, look it up...), boot back to distro #2...
