"Lilo is a Boot loader for Linux and other operating systems. Lilo is responsible for loading your Linux kernel from either a floppy or a hard drive and giving it control of the system. It can also be used to boot many other operating sysetms, including the BSD variants, DOS, and OS/2. The Lilo distribution includes full source, documentation and support files, but no pre-compiled binaries."
