Description Keith Dixon 2006-11-22 10:06:08 EST
Description of problem:
Anaconda has no mechanism for selecting the disc in whose MBR the stage1 loader
will be written.  It can only write it to the first disc.  Many BIOSes allow one
to choose the disc to boot from, but one can not take advantage of this.

When you choose the device, it's generally done by faking out what the boot
device is.  IF you go to the advanced bootloader screen, you can change the
order of the disks
