Install grub2 in partition is possible?

I tried to install grub2 in partition, not in MBR.
I have installed grub4dos in MBR, and I prefer to install grub2 in sda6.
sda6 is ext3 formated and has Debian squeeze installed on it.

I tried to install grub2 in sda6 and I had this error:

ubuntu@ubuntu:/mnt$ sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt /dev/sda6
/usr/sbin/grub-setup: warn: Intento de instalar GRUB en una partición en vez de MBR. Esto es una MALA idea..
/usr/sbin/grub-setup: warn: No es posible empotrar. GRUB sólo se puede instalar en esta configuración mediante el uso de listas de bloques. Sin embargo, las listas de bloques no son confiables y su uso no es recomendable..
/usr/sbin/grub-setup: error: Si realmente quiere usar listas de bloques, use --force.

Just try installing it again with --force and it will work.
