Assuming you want to boot from grub then you would still need to install it
on the MBR of the drive you are booting off of and you could still edit
the grub.conf file with your favorite text editor. The tricky part would
be creating an entry for the other other system you want to boot. There is
a way to chain boot where you point grub to the boot loader for the other
os. I don't use this myself, so I don't have exact advice, but I have seen
the documentation in grub. "info grub" will allow you to read it.
