Question Confused with Mandriva 2007 Free installation (bootloader section)


Hello. I am confused on what I am supposed to do. Here is my problem I have two hard drives, both of them are 160 GB and Windows Vista RC2 is on the 1st (Master) drive. I planned to install Mandriva 2007 Free on the 2nd drive (Slave). How do I tell DrakX to put GRUB on the MBR of the first drive,the one with Vista?

P.S. I already know how to make GRUB work with Vista.

I do not know if this option comes at this stage during install
I have been confused in the past myself

just select the drive, if there is no option you can either install grub later
worst case it will end up on the wrong drive or partition, in your case it is fine

remember the rescue mode of the cd to reinstall grub if there was a problem
