Comments/Problems: The boot loader doesn't say where
it's writing the MBR except the "first hard drive"
sort of vague at times.  If I unplug my IDE, it writes
to the MBR of SCSI drive, if I leave the IDE pluged
in, it writes to my IDE over writing the windows MBR. 

If it named the disk it would writing too, as it does
when you're selecting where to install, and gave you
an option of easily selecting a different one, this
phase of install would be flawless.
