Slackware, Slax Patrick J. Volkerding announced the first release candidate of Slackware 12 in the current changelog. This will be the first Slackware release with a kernel from the 2.6 tree (2.6.21.5) as default. "It's that time again, and here we have Slackware 12.0 release candidate 1! If we're lucky, we got it all right the first time. Big thanks to the crew."

Last time I checked Grub didn't support a lot of filesystems, like XFS, so if you wanted to use one of those you had to install Lilo.
Debian 4 is same way, it'll install Grub for you by default, but if you choose XFS as your main file system then it'll install Lilo.
