I don't know anything about lilo so I can't say which is more accessible. 
But with grub, you can configure a serial console so your boot menu can be 
displayed on another machine connected via a null modem cable.

serial --unit=0 --speed=9600
terminal serial

     I will soon be taking a course that will require me to use a dual boot 
system. We will be running Redhat and Windows XP. My question is which dual 
boot loader is more accessible grub or lilo? Thank you.
