Multiple times I've installed a new kernel, forgotten to run lilo, then
had the old kernel start, or worse yet, had no kernel start booting
because part of the new kernel overwrote part of the old kernel, but
NOT the whole thing. kernel corruption = bad. I'm aware that this is
user error on my part, but the fact remains that grub wouldn't care
about such things.
I'm pretty sure I'm the only one who has had trouble with things like
this (check the lfs-support archives). fewer support questions = good.
