Every install, grub is installed by default on the MBR.
Most cases when guys are dual booting with windows or they are using grub from linux or for that matter easyBCD or GAG to load their OS, it will be nice if we have the option to install grub on the same slice as pcbsd /
this option is available on any linux distro install. the benefit will be as follows...
Windows users after a upgrade or windows repair, it erases grub from MBR. if any such thing happens pcbsd becomes literally impossible to boot without having to resort to a 3rd party loader like easyBCD or GAG. Doing this will surely make us leave the wonderful option of choosing the boot environment at the grub splash itself !
i felt it will be nice if an option is given to install grub on the same partition as pcbsd install...
