  Grub doesn't want to get installed on / partition

Status in grub-installer package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Grub does not want to get installed on the / partition of Ubuntu. I have 
  Ubuntu installed on /dev/hdb1 and I have Slackware's LILO on /dev/hda and I 
  want to keep it that way. So, when Grub told me to install it instead on the 
  / or Ubuntu (so I can load it later), I did so, but then Grub spat out an 
  error saying it can't write there. I went back to the main ubuntu menu during 
  installation, selected LILO,  and LILO got installed on /dev/hdb1 just fine. 
  That seems to be a Grub bug (reiserfs was used btw).
