puppy 5.01 grub loader

I can instal the basic puppy 5.01, but keep on having issues with instaling the grub loader. I want to get puppy installed fully so i can run puppy without the CD. I finally convinced my sister to come over to the Linux side *darth vader breathing* "Luke... I am your father" sorry, let me try that again. *darth vader breathing" "Rebecca, come over to the linux side, we have cookies"
Sorry couldn't resist. getting back to the main issue, I installed puppy 5.01 Then when I instal Grub loader, it says Select Grub Partion, and when it wants a name to use for a partition.
wondering why i have to create a new partation, and what can i do to instal it. and the next step to fully instal it so i can run it without a disk

For new installation you will need partition with linux compatible filesystem.

I don't think there is possiblity to set two /bin folders on same partition

Maybe grub don't need a standalone partition but you just need to select one that will host grub?

Have a look at this installation guide:

If you are doing this for someone who has never used Linux, you may be better off with Puppy 4.3. Version 5 is still a bit rough round the edges; it's not really a straight replacement for 4.3 but a development of new ideas.
