As Bjoern Franke pointed out previously in this thread, there is no such
thing as "the MBR of a partition". MBRs are only at the beginning of
devices, not partitions. The guide you linked explains how to install grub
to "the boot sector of a partition".

It may seem like nit-picking, but I think that precision in this kind of
issues is important, because a confused user could very well wipe out all
his data...
