Bug#230502: debian-installer wiped out my MBR

Maybe forget about the acronym.

When it will come to translate this, I will put something like:

Cette opération se fait usuellement en installant le chargeur de
démarrage GRUB sur le secteur d'amorçage de votre disque.

word for word translation:

"This is usually done by installing the GRUB boot loader on your
disk's master boot record"

Maybe add something like:

"and replace the existing boot loader if another operating system, or
another Linux installation, already exists on you system"

(need rewrite, but you get the point)

PS : as translator, I would appreciate if the new strings are as
neutral as possible, regarding the boot loader name. Indeed, the less
they contain the boot loader name, the more they will be identical
between all boot loader packages. Ideally, as the dialogs title will
contain the boot loader name, it shouldn't be mentioned at all.
