Mandrake 10 install of boot loader

During the install of mandrake 10, I was not given the choice of where
to install the bootloader. I prefer to have it located in the root
partition if the linux installation.

All other Linux distributions with which I have dabbled *have* given the option.

This time I was not given the option, the step seemed to be skipped
during install, and I assume that it was too late to do anything when
presented with the config screen at the end of the install.

This caused no end of problems with my floppy-less laptop.
