The BIOS has no concept of partitions. GRUB is not an OS. It is an OS
loader. My copy of GRUB gets loaded from a file in my Windows XP
partition by the XP Boot Manager.

Ah.  If GRUB isn't in the MBR, but, for example, hda1, then what's in the
MBR?

Whatever you put into it. On my machine, it's Microsoft's MBR.
