Refer to the GRUB documentation (Muhahahaha!) or ask on the grub mailing
list. Short answer: Run /sbin/grub and enter the correct install= command.

We had a long discussion about this a few days ago. Summary is that GRUB is
not yet completely ready for prime-time, and that potato is too close to
include it in the default setup. But for the next release, it may very well
be an option.

OTOH, it is not obvious how to install it. But I know from the developers
that things are going to improve soon.
