Last time I tried installing grub into a partition (which is a while
ago), it kept complaining a lot and refusing to install. Grub is weird
My rationale is this:
1.) You want to chainload grub: There is no need to chainload grub. If
you want to use grub from a different system, you can just add Arch to
that grub instance manually.
2.) You don't want to chainload grub: Put it in the MBR then.
More importantly: Don't use grub, use syslinux (which will always
install in the /boot partition).
