If you use the advanced partitioning method, then yes, you can choose where
Grub puts its loader. Bare in mind that unless you are using an EFI based
machine, your BIOS is not likely to let you select which partition to
boot. It will only boot that disk, and then whatever partition is marked
as active in the partition table will be booted.
