You can use lilo when you:

Install a minimal filesystem(eg. /boot) for lilo, libs, and
your kernels into the first 512MB of your ide disk and run the map
installer by "cd /boot;chroot /boot /boot/sbin/lilo". You have more work
for maintaining the boot, but the root disk have not to be installed by
the bios and you don't have to use DOS for booting linux.


BTW: fips(on most Linux-CDs) is a fine tool for non-desructively shrinking
of DOS-partitions. Used it a without any prob.
