A boot loader isn't an option just for dual booting, it's a required
step between BIOS and OS.

Even Windows has one, you just don't see it by default.

If grub offends you :-) after you install normally you can set the
'timeout' value in /boot/grub/menu.lst to 0 and you'll hardly even
notice it's there.
