I went for it and it works.  F1 gives me WinXP, 2 and 3 take me to Dfly 
even though F2 says DOS.  I don't think the IBM partition has a loader, 
it is launched from a hotkey at bios boot.

I would suggest that GRUB be added to the installer utilities for people 
who want more control.  It is a bit of chicken and egg problem for a 
fresh install if you don't want to use the DFly boot installer.

Thanks for help all,
