I mean how to choose the place where the boot sector should be on the IDE hdd not on sata ?

    Additional information :

    I want to make this layout :

    For IDE (80GB) hard disk :

    100 Mb ==> /boot
    40 GB ==> / (The system)
    2 GB ==> SWAP
    available free space ==> (for another porpuses)

    For SATA (320GB) hard disk :
    /file (to store the file on it and share it over wired LAN, using samba ofcourse )

    on the summay page just before the install begins there is an advanced button.
    press it. Thats the place to tell it to install grubs stage1 code someplace other than the default.

    On my system I have the same sort of thing, 250Gb PATA and 160Gb SATA the system sees the SATA disk as the first disk and IDE disk as the second disk, just install grub on the first disk (SATA) and all will work the way it is supposed to.
