Very first link when this comes up. I think it should be what you need.
I am not a MAC users but from your request, it looks right.

I don't know of a way yet. I don't like the redundant bootloaders either!

You may already know this but you can set your grub timeout really low 0 or 1 second and it becomes more palatable.

I've got my rEFIt looking really sweet ->
http://colinharrington.net/blog/2009/05/customizing-refit-an-efi-bootloader-intel-macs-slick/ but now that BURG is getting more mature and GRUB2 supports EFI, I'd actually like to use just GRUB2/BURG without rEFIt, but haven't been able to figure it out yet.

Have you given BURG a try yet? / Why do you hate GRUB?
