    I would say install it to MBR. If you are dual booting with windows or another distro, it would be easier to have just one bootloader written onto the MBR rather than having multiple bootloaders on separate partitions.
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.

    thanks

    thnaks... i was under the impression that if i install it to mbr then it will cut my access to windows.....
    one more query..
    when i will reboot will it directly detect my 3 windows and 1 linux or i will have to do some command line work(i hate it)
