Install Mandrake without bootloader

Hi, I want to install Mandrake 10.1 but I don't want to install the Bootloader
is there any options to diable it?

My system is running Fedora Core 3, and just want to try Mandrake 10.1 so I dont want to scrap my Grub with the one of Mandrake.

Yeas, there is an option to do that during installation. I usually do the expert install (just type "F1" and type "expert" when the Mandrake installation disk starts.) and it definitely has that option.

You can put the bootloader on your MDK partition.

Note: Don't use grub as bootloader-on-partition if that partition is xfs, that corrupts the fs.
Lilo on xfs-partition, grub on MBR or grub on ext3/reiserfs/jfs partition works.
