NetBSD and bootselector

During the install NetBSD I am offered the choice of installing the 'NetBSD bootselector'. I can choose either YES or NO. As I have Linux installed on the same machine with GRUB, how do I spring over this option. The idea is to add NetBSD to my GRUB after installation is completed.
Any suggestions appreciated.

if you want to use grub to boot netbsd, choose 'no' to not install the netbsd bootloader, then boot to linux after the install and add netbsd to your grub.conf
