#781: Option to install grub on the same slice as pcbsd
---------------------------------+-------------------------

     Type:  System Enhancement   |     Status:  new
 Priority:  major                |  Milestone:
Component:  Installer            |    Version:  9.2-RELEASE
 Keywords:  grub install option  |
---------------------------------+-------------------------
 Every install, grub is installed by default on the MBR.
 Most cases when guys are dual booting with windows or they are using grub
 from linux or for that matter easyBCD or GAG to load their OS, it will be
 nice if we have the option to install grub on the same slice as pcbsd /
 this option is available on any linux distro install. the benefit will be
 as follows...
 Windows users after a upgrade or windows repair, it erases grub from MBR.
 if any such thing happens pcbsd becomes literally impossible to boot
 without having to resort to a 3rd party loader like easyBCD or GAG. Doing
 this will surely make us leave the wonderful option of choosing the boot
 environment at the grub splash itself !

 i felt it will be nice if an option is given to install grub on the same
 partition as pcbsd install...
