Yes, thanks to Microsoft for assuming that everyone wants their
bootloader.  In all the dual-boot docs I've ever read, they always say
install Windows first for this very reason.  Incidentally, a few weeks
back I was installing FC4 as a test host, and found that it was pretty
difficult to disable it from installing their GRUB.
