You may keep your current boot loader in the MBR
and install GRUB as a secondary boot loader. If you choose this

of the Linux
|GRUB as a Secondary Boot Loader|
If you install GRUB as a secondary boot loader, you must reconfigure your primary boot loader whenever you install and boot from a new kernel. The kernel of an operating system such as Microsoft Windows does not boot in the same fashion. Most users therefore use GRUB as the primary boot loader on dual-boot systems.
You may also need the advanced options if your BIOS enumerates your drives or RAID arrays differently than Fedora expects. If necessary, use thedialog to set the order of the devices in Fedora to match your BIOS.
On a few systems, Fedora may not configure the disk drive geometry for large disks correctly because of limitations within the BIOS. To work around this problem, mark thecheck box.
The Linux kernel usually auto-detects its environment correctly, and no additional kernel parameters are needed. However, you may provide any needed kernel parameter using the advanced boot loader options.
For a partial list of the kernel command line parameters, type
the following command in a terminal window:
To alter any of these settings, mark thecheck box. Select and the advanced boot options menu appears.
Fedora displays the advanced boot options menu only if the advanced configuration check box described above has been selected.
