[CentOS] bootloader installed at wrong place during install

I've just started testing CentOS 4.4 installs.  When installing on two  
mirrored drives, the bootloader got installed into the first  
partition, instead of MBR.  It was a kickstart install, and I used  
"bootloader --location=mbr" in the kickstart file (which is also a  
default).  However, when looking into /root/anaconda-ks.cfg file,  
misteriously it was changed to "bootloader --location=partition" by  

I've noticed this happening only when installing on two mirrored  
drives.  If installing on a single drive, the boot loader ends up in  
MBR as it should.

The partition config was relatively simple.  Two partitions on each  
disk, mirrored.  One for /boot, one for LVM (which than contained  
everything else).

Has anybody else experienced same problem?
