Speaking of mbr's and debian, debian comes with a pretty nice mbr (not
lilo), which can boot from any partition with a boot sector.  So if you
mess up lilo somehow on a >1-boot system, you can boot to another os and
try to fix stuff (or make a rescue floppy. yes, I know.  I had one, but
I hadn't used it in months and the floppy itself apparently went bad.).
