I've found that you have to format your disks before the install (and
create a bios_grub partition) and you then have to run "grub-install
/dev/sdb" once you're booted into your install.

You can probably install grub on both disks by refusing to install to
the MBR and then installing it to (hd0) and (hd1) but I've never tried
