switching between lilo and grub - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Installing with GRUB on RH9 also leaves lilo.conf.anaconda in /etc. Renaming this file, and running LILO replaces GRUB. Question: How can I get GRUB back again? I need to switch back and forth between the two. Regards, Gary...

    Installing with GRUB on RH9 also leaves lilo.conf.anaconda
    in /etc. Renaming this file, and running LILO replaces GRUB.

    Question:

    How can I get GRUB back again?

    I need to switch back and forth between the two.

    Start by reading the man pages on "lilo" and on "grub-install". For example,
    you don't need to rename lilo.conf.anaconda.....

    Why do you need to switch back and forth?

    If you have to, you can put one or both on floppy disks.
    Maybe even try syslinux or loadlin, or whatever other boot loaders are
    out there.
