Install lilo/grub to root

EDIT: Nevermind, I went ahead and installed, then I saw the option to put lilo on the root partition.

I haven't used Slackware in a long time. So, before I install, I would like to know if there is there an easy way to install lilo or grub to the root partition? I'd really prefer not to install it to the mbr.
