    This still needs LILO on your linux partition to boot linux, so it is certainly not a LILO replacement. It it suitable if you want to boot Win95 / Dos as well as Linux, and for that it has a better interface than LILO, but the downside is that it must be set up from Dos / Windows, with the "Direct Reboot" facility only available from those.

It is basically a much better DOS MBR.
