This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

and you're done. you can install in whatever partition you want as you may have another bootloader in the MBR which can be chained on from, e.g. vista boot loader. i hink it's possible to chain load on the xp too, but generally it's always so much nicer to chain from grub to xp than any other layout.
Short answer: The BIOS transfers control to the MBR on whatever devices are specified in the BIOS setup. As the previous post says, you can then "chain-load" from there. One of our local experts (Saikee) recommends setting up systems this way---especially when you want to have many OSes installed.
