I think it is bad practice to put the Linux loader (whether it be GRUB, LILO or any other) into the MBR, since that is not the purpose of the MBR and a rather fragile place (e.g. reinstalling the Redmond OS on a dual boot system usually overwrites the MBR). Putting it into the first sector of the boot partition is much better.
