From man pages:

http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/806-0625/6j9vfilog?a=view

installboot- install bootblocks in a disk partition

http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/816-5166/installgrub-1m?a=view

installgrub  install GRUB in a disk partition or a floppy

The installgrub command is an x86only program. GRUB stands for GRand Unified Bootloader.

installgrub installs GRUB stage 1 and stage 2 files on the boot area of a disk partition. If you specify the -m option, installgrub installs the stage 1 file on the master boot sector of the disk.
