Use liloconfig.  It will install a partition boot record on whatever
partition is appropriate and continues on to ask you whether or not you
want to install a master boot record.  Since you will be using another
boot manager (the IBM thingy :)) just answer "no" when liloconfig asks you
about the MBR.  Liloconfig explains each question it asks so you shouldn't
have any problem.

This list is here to help.  No need to apologize.  I have lots of
questions that I consider stupid, too.  :)
