2) Where should grub be installed for the least trouble?

In boot sector of Linux partition, which is default. Partition must be primary and marked active, in other words bootable.
So if asked the question were to install grub, i should answer default...
After XP recovery from Ghost image, you can use recovery mode of openSUSE installation DVD to mark linux partition bootable again, if that information is lost, and all should work like before.
so i won't have to touch grub at all, only mark the partition bootable...
BTW, Ghost should not have a problem with generic bootloader that is installed by default.
What generic bootloader? Grub isn't the generic bootloader?
In ghost manual explicitly explained: does not work with grub...
I contacted symantec about that this afternoon in a live chat: no bootloader supported, they give me a refund for the programm, because i cannot use it with dual, triple or quadruple boot.
