Option to automatically back up the MBR during installation

Registered by Tony Yarusso on 2006-04-16

There should be an option provided in the installer to create and save a backup of the existing master boot record (MBR). This comes in handy for certain recovery things, for example, on IBM ThinkPads if one realizes later that they need the "Access IBM" button recovery functionality restored, or any similar special features. This functionality is already available in SUSE 10.
