Lilo cannot be installed during a normal installation (caused very
controversial discussions on the test-list ;-)), but anaconda creates a
lilo.conf, so it's very easy to install lilo.

cp /lilo.conf.anaconda /etc/lilo.conf
up2date -nox lilo (or install from disc 3)
rpm -e grub
/sbin/lilo

If you are looking for a really fast way to setup boxes you can do an
automatic kickstart install, in kickstart lilo is still available.

BTW: I never had problems using GRUB. No problems with updates.
