Fedora 17 boot loader should be installed on MBR or logical partion on MBA2012?

Well,now I've a DUAL-boot-OS(win7+lion10.7.4) mac book air 2012 with rEFIt installed . I'm wondering about where to install the fedora17 boot loader, on MBR or fedora partion? When I select to install on /dev/sda6(mount point /), system exception occured, no further operation can be performed.
If I install the Fedora 17 boot loader on MBR of MAC local drive, will it destroy the booting of MAC OS and windows7 system? I do NOT wanna lose the previous data.

Anyone knows that ,Plz help.Thx a lot!

It should in theory only replace whatever bootloader present with grub2. Data will not be destroyed. As long as you install fedora to an empty partition. But have you heard about backup?
