GAG is a standalone boot disquette / boot CD.  It doesn't need Winblows 
or anything eles.  It just installs itself on MBR and the boot media 
contain the config utility with the "write to MBR" function.

You just have to instruct Linux to put all its stuff to its partition. 
I'm not very familiar with all the Linux boot stuff, so i can't comment 
on how to do it for somebody that had Linux installed first.  I'm sure 
somebody on the list can give us infos about it and using GAG on MBR 
afterward.
