Description of problem:
During installation, requesting that the boot loader be installed somewhere
other than the MBR has no effect. The existing MBR is still overwritten.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Begin a non-upgrade installation of FC4T3.
2. In the boot loader configuration screen, place a check in the "Advanced
3. In the next screen, request that the boot loader be installed to a partition
boot sector (e.g., hda8) rather than the MBR.
4. Continue with the installation.
Actual Results: When you reboot, you will find that the MBR has been overwritten with the grub
boot loader for the FC4 installation.
Expected Results: The existing MBR should have been left intact.
This is fixed for FC4 final
