Installing Redhat on a 2 disk system

I have installed Widows 2003 server on its own individual hdd & now am wanting to install Redhat Fedora on its own as well.

I have W2k3 installed on a 10 gig primary master
This is /dev/hda1

Linus will be on a primary slave
Fedora will be on /dev/hdb2

I am wanting to install Linux on a 40 gig primary slave

When i run through the install & want to to install the grub or Lilo boot loader

what should i be choosing ??

Install bootloader on /dev/hda or /dev/hdb1

Any help here would be great

The boot record is on the primary drive, so to answer your question is should be /dev/hda. That way the computer will know where to find the OS.
